Recruitment for government jobs sees brisk business these days owing to the staggeringly high number of unemployed youth that apply for the minimal number of openings. The government departments may not be doing this for the sake for money obviously but the filling of vacant posts has definitely become a a hen that lays golden eggs. Different departments in the state are grossing huge sums of money from the sale of forms to fill their vacant posts. The forms may not look very expensive to those coming from affluent families but for those youth belonging to families that live just above poverty line, choosing one form over the other becomes a massive problem. The BPL family faces even tougher times.
The target of 4.5 lakh applications is for just 4,000 vacant posts.
