PRESS NOTE APPEAL FOR JUSTICE FOR INJUSTICE DONE IN RECRUITMENT PROCESS OF GETCO M/s. Gujarat Energy Transmission Corporation Ltd. (GETCO)
APPEAL FOR JUSTICE
FOR INJUSTICE DONE IN RECRUITMENT PROCESS OF GETCO
M/s. Gujarat Energy Transmission Corporation Ltd. (GETCO) had conducted the exam for Vidyut Sahayak (Junior Engineer) - Electrical and Civil on 11.01.2014 in Gujarat and the result of which was declared on 22.01.2014 on the GETCO website. The recruitment was purely based on the marks of written exam only, as given in the recruitment advertisement. According to the merit the candidates were called for document verification on 26.05.2014 at their corporate office in Vadodara. All the formalities were completed by the eligible candidates.
Ordinarily, recruitment process in GETCO for Junior Engineers is completed in the span of 30-45 days. But, this time, due to unidentified reasons the process got delayed by a span of 9 months. After 9 long months the notice came as follows
“The online examination conducted by M/s. Gujarat Energy Transmission Corporation Ltd. (GETCO) on 11.01.2014 for the post of Vidyut Sahayak (Junior Engineer) - Electrical and Civil has been scrapped and consequently the result declared by them on their website stands cancelled, due to unavoidable administrative reasons and Fresh examination shall be conducted by declaring recruitment and new selection criteria.”
We are not able to understand what is the reason that after taking such a long time they had to cancel the result WHEN ALL THE CONDITIONS OF ELEGIBILITY WERE GIVEN IN THE ADVERTISEMENT AND IT CLEARLY STATED THAT THE RECRUITMENT WOULD BE DONE ONLY ON MERIT BASIS. We have got information from various sources claiming that it got cancelled because the Engineer’s Association wanted majority quota for local candidates.
This dictatorship of Gujarat Government and GETCO Officials is very much disappointing and encouraging the feeling of castism in the youth of the nation. The candidates eagerly waiting for their appointment orders have gone in the stage of trauma to view the Cancellation Notice instead of their Appointment Orders.
Now the result is that all candidates whether Gujarati or Other states are on the suffering end. The candidates and the guardians are really unable to understand that what sort of administrative issues had forced the management to cancel the examination and go for the fresh one, that too even after completing the final stage of document verification process of the selected candidates.
So we all candidates irrespective of our caste, creed, colour, or religion through the medium of Print Media and request you all to take the corrective measures and appeal personally to get justice to the meritorious deserving candidates and implement the result declared on 22.01.2014.We would like that everyone should support what is right and not what appeals to them so that atleast we can get fair employment from a state which boasts of its fair means and practices.
