Whiff of a scam: Candidate whose application was rejected chosen for appointment

Jaipur: The commissioner’s office here recruited an applicant whose application was earlier rejected. A complaint to this effect, made to the home department, has put a questions mark on the entire selection process.

In November 2017, applications for direct recruitment to the post of cooks and sweepers were invited by the Jaipur Commissioner’s office. Thirty-three applications were received for eight posts of cooks and 220 applications were received for four posts of sweepers. A selection board was formed under the leadership of DCP (HQ) Gaurav Shrivastava for the selection. The complainants have accused the officers of the board of selecting a candidate named Jitendra Kumar Yadav despite his application being rejected earlier. It is alleged that many other candidates have also been selected in the same manner. When the Bhaskar team spoke on the phone to other candidates, they said that their application was rejected because it did not mention the post they were applying for.

Selected candidates work at bungalows of officers

Chand San, Bhairu Singh, Ludha Ram, Jitendra Kumar Yadav, Rakesh Kumar, Manish Kheniwal, Jethmal and Babulal Meena were selected for the post of cooks. Suraj Kumar Chaudhary and Rohitash Saini, along with four others, were selected for the post of sweepers. Sources say that many of the selected candidates were already working at the bungalows of the officers of the collectorate.
