81,700 graduates apply for 62 peon posts in UP Police


September 2, 2018

In a startling case that exposes the shocking state of unemployment in Uttar Pradesh, around 50,000 graduates, 28,000 post-graduates and 3,700 PhD holders have applied for 62 vacant posts in the telecom department of UP Police.

The minimum eligibility required for the post of a messenger in the UP Police is Class 5th. However, the department has postponed the hiring process after being in a fix over the spree of highly-qualified applicants.

“Around 93,500 applicants have applied for 62 vacant posts. This includes graduates, post graduates, MBAs, MCAs, PhDs and people holding other highly qualified degrees,” Director General-Telecom Department of UP Police Pramod Kumar Tiwari said.

“Earlier, the selection used to happen if a person applying for this job knows how to ride a bicycle. However, now the written examination is also mandatory,” he said.

“With too many applicants for mere 62 posts, we have requested the government to provide us funds so that an agency could be hired for getting offline examinations conducted. However, the hiring process has been put on hold for now,” added the DG-telecom.

The starting salary for this job is Rs 20,000.

Meanwhile, the Samajwadi Party (SP) has targeted the Yogi Adityanath-led UP government for failing to provide employment to the people of the state.

Speaking to India Today, SP spokesperson Abdul Hafiz Gandhi said, “UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s statement was insulting when he said that qualified youths are not there. However, the fact is that the youths of UP are qualified but the government is not able to provide them jobs.”

Reacting to the opposition’s criticism, UP BJP leader Rakesh Tripathi said, “During the tenure of the SP government, applicants for hiring in all departments used to approach the court alleging discrepancies. The hiring used to happen only on the basis of money power or caste. Since the BJP has come to power, there is full transparency in the hiring process.”
