As many as five lakh aspirants, including graduates and post-graduates, have applied for 3,275 posts of ‘safai karamchari’ (sweepers) in Kanpur Municipal Corporation, an official said on Monday.

While no educational qualifications are required for the posts, municipal officials have been overwhelmed by the number of highly-qualified applicants so far and they are expecting the number of applications to touch seven lakh.

According to officials, the corporation had released an employment notification for the post of sweepers on contractual basis, of which 1,500 are for general category and rests are meant for reserved categories.

The process of screening the forms and uploading those onto database is on, the official said.
