National Payments Corporation of India (NPCI) has announced to hire over 250 graduate engineering trainees (GETs) under its hiring campaign across India, saying that the initiative will also impart ‘deep tech’ training to these graduates.

The NPCI will be offering the ‘Learn DeepTech while you Earn’ programme for the GETs to pursue Post Graduate(PG) Certification in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (AI/ML) or Blockchain from a reputed institution. GETs will get the opportunity to pursue one year PG programmes in addition to the salary package being offered to them, the NPCI said in a statement. 

Further, the GETs will be placed at NPCI’s facilities in key metro cities across India. Fresh graduates will also get to work on live projects where they get to work on top-notch products like UPI, RuPay, and FASTag, as maintained by NPCI.
