According to an official release, the recruits will be able to train themselves for their jobs through Karmayogi Prarambh, an online orientation course.

Before Mr. Modi’s televised address, Ms. Sitharaman enquired with the recruits about their struggles. Many women recruits said they considered this job as their first step towards a bigger role in the Central and State governments. Some had the bigger dream of becoming civil servants.

The women recruits also expressed their admiration for Ms. Sitharaman and hoped to occupy important posts, like the one she holds.

Mr. Modi, who spoke in Hindi, said the country was growing at a remarkable speed over the last nine years.
