|Reliance to hire thousands of ex-servicemen in retail|
Reliance Industries plans to hire several thousands of ex-servicemen as it spreads wings in the retail sector. Having set up outlets in a number of cities, the Reliance Retail has offered jobs in plenty to the large pool of talented and qualified workforce emerging out of the forces.
As its footprints expands across the country, the company has the capacity to employ all of around 60,000 uniformed men retiring every year, Colonel (Retired) S.P. Nanda, Vice-President, Reliance Industries, told a day-long seminar in New Delhi here today. A large number of jobs are also being constantly created by the group in specialized professions like drivers for cranes, bulldozers and earthmovers and heavy machinery operators.
The Indian Veterans Network, a body of retired defence personnel from India and abroad, was launched on the occasion by the chief guest, former Information and Broadcasting Minister Brigadier (Retd.) K. P. Singh Deo,. An initiative of the Chandigarh-based Institute of Tourism and Future Management (ITFT-Group), the Network, to be registered as a society and consisting of retired officers of the three services, would provide a platform for reoccupation and welfare of their families.
Addressing the delegates, Lt. General (Retd.) Ranjit Singh Dyal, ITFT Chairman and former Lt. Governor of Pondicherry and Andaman and Nicobar islands, said a global network conference of Indian Veterans would be held on the sidelines of the 3-day Bharatiya Pravasi Diwas celebrations in January next year. General Dyal said the conference would offer an opportunity to interact with about 8,000 ex-servicemen settled abroad, part of the 26 million Indian diaspora, and explore overseas job opportunities for retiring servicemen.
Dr. Gulshan Sharma, Executive Director, ITFT, said the group runs a website Defence Welfare Call, www.defencewelfarecall.com to act as bridge between the Directorate General Resettlement (DGR) and the private industry.
Major General Harwant Krishan, DGR, also spoke on the occasion.
