The government boasts that India is the fastest growing economy in the world. But, what is the use? Unemployment problem continues to plague the nation. How acute is the unemployment problem in our country, is brought out by the fact that, 2.8 crore persons have applied for appearing in the online exam for 90, 000 jobs in the Indian Railways. Out of this, 62,907 are the posts of gangmen, switchmen, trackmen, cabinmen, welder,helpers and porters. Today is the last day for applying. So, the number of applicants is likely to increase.
