Modi will address the youth and distribute letters virtually.
Exact number of appointment letters to be given virtually by the Prime Minister in this month’s Rozgar Mela will be known on September 25. Last month, Modi had delivered 51,000 appointment orders while prior to that the number of appointments was 71,000.
This month also, the number of jobs to be given to youth across the country was expected to be between 50,000 to 71,000.
In Jammu, Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industries Som Prakash will distribute appointment letters among the youth in the presence of BJP MP from Jammu constituency Jugal Kishore Sharma and senior officers of civil and police administration.

Department of Posts will be hosting the Rozgar Mela of this month as maximum vacancies have been filled by the Department, official sources told the Excelsior.
Last month’s Rozgar Mela was generally confined to the Union Ministry of Home Affairs headed by Amit Shah as the youth were recruited mostly in paramilitary forces including the Border Security Force (BSF), Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF), Central Industrial Security Force (CISF), Indo-Tibetan Border Police (ITBP) etc.
“This month’s Rozgar Mela on September 26 will be held in 45 locations across the country. At all the places, a Union Minister each will deliver appointment letter to the youth recruited in various Central Government Departments,” the sources said.
For the past many months, Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been holding Rogzgar Mela every month and distributing virtually around 70,000 appointment letters among the youth in each Mela.
Sources said the Rozgar Melas are expected to continue every month for some more time as large number of vacancies are being filled by the Central Government in various departments.
“Jammu and Kashmir has also been beneficiary of Rozgar Melas as a number of local youth have got appointment letters in almost every Mela. In addition, J&K hosted on exclusive Rozgar Mela which was also addressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi virtually to distribute the letters,” the sources said.
Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha had recently stated that recruitment process in UT Government departments will be expedited from this month and many vacancies will be filled.
The Rozgar Mela is a step towards fulfillment of the commitment of the Prime Minister to accord highest priority to employment generation. The Rozgar Mela is expected to act as a catalyst in further employment generation and provide meaningful opportunities to the youth for their empowerment and participation in national development, the sources said.
The newly inducted appointees are also getting an opportunity to train themselves through Karmayogi Prarambh, an online module on iGOT Karmayogi portal, where more than 673 e-learning courses have been made available for ‘anywhere any device’ learning format, they added.
