RTI activist slams PMC for 'recruitment chaos'

Jul 30, 2012, 08:17 IST | Priyankka Deshpande

RTI activist Vijay Kumbhar yesterday claimed he had got complaints from several candidates aspiring to become junior engineers in the PMC that they had not recieved call letters for an interview from the civic office. The two-day interview process for the post commences today.

Kumbhar claimed that several candidates had also taken an objection to the nature of the written test held recently. He also said the PMC published the list of the candidates who had cleared the written test just two days ago. 

“The PMC published the list of candidates on Friday evening. Since Saturday and Sunday are non-working days, several candidates were unable to check whether their names had appeared in the list or not,” Kumbhar said.

Kumbhar pointed out that the list, which was displayed on the notice board, was full of errors. Names in the list resembled that of the PMC’s current employees or their relatives who did not even appear for the written test.

“I hope it is just be a coincidence that the names of the candidates resemble the (names) of PMC’s current employees or their relatives,” Kumbhar said. “I fear the involvement of PMC officials in a job scam.”

Deputy Commissioner General (Establishment) Kundlik Karkar was unavailable for comment.
