In the wake of a number of fake recruitment agencies advertising on its behalf, DMRC has sought the help of the Delhi Police to rein in such firms which are duping people with the false promise of providing them jobs in the organisation.
To create awareness among the people about such fake advertisements issued by agencies, the Delhi Metro has also brought out public notices in leading newspapers.
The organisation has recently written to the Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime, New Delhi, asking him to crack down on such fake agencies.
The move comes after a local Hindi daily in Bulandshahar in Uttar Pradesh carried an advertisement issued by a fake agency called 'DMRC Placement Services' calling applications for over 2,000 posts in Delhi Metro.
Taking strong note of the advertisement in 'Uttarakhand Rozgar Darshan', DMRC has also written to the Station House Officer of the Kotla Mubarakpur Police Station requesting him to file an FIR as the address of this fake agency mentioned in the advertisement was 'DSIDC Complex, Bapu Park, Kotla Mubarakpur.'
A DMRC spokesman said the organisation does not authorise any individual or firm to carry out recruitment on its behalf.
All vacancies in DMRC are advertised in advance in newspapers and Delhi Metro's website 'www.Delhimetrorail.Com', and then the selection is done in a transparent manner through written examinations, interviews and medical tests, he said.
He said the DMRC has adopted a slew of measures to prevent fake recruitment agencies from duping innocent job seekers in the name of granting them employment in Delhi Metro.
The spokesperson said the organisation has also written to the newspapers to guard them against such fraudulent practices by fake recruitment agencies in New Delhi.
"DMRC had written to the Joint Commissioner of Police, Crime, New Delhi, urging him to crack down on such fake agencies, which are duping people to the tune of thousands of rupees with the promise of providing them jobs in DMRC," he said.
The spokesman said there are some agencies, which are even issuing fake appointment letters in exchange of huge amount of money. DMRC officials said more than a dozen cases of false and fraud appointments have been detected so far. More than 15 cases of fake appointments have been registered with the police since 2003.
