Uttar Pradesh government has ordered a vigilance inquiry into recruitments of livestock extension officers during the previous SP regime, alleging more selections were made than the posts available.

Taking a serious note of recruitment of more candidates that the number of advertised posts in December 2004, Chief Minister Mayawati has ordered a vigilance inquiry into selection of 110 additional livestock extension officers, a government spokesman said today.

While ordering stern action against the officers responsible for irregularity, Mayawati has also directed immediate verification of certificates of livestock extension officers in those divisions, where verification exercise was not undertaken. "If false certificates are detected, then FIRs would be lodged," the spokesman said.

Mayawati has directed the authorities to put a proposal within 15 days for taking action against the chairman/member of selection committees and other guilty officers.

In December 2004, 489 posts of livestock extension officers were advertised division wise and the selection procedure was completed in 2006, the spokesman said.

Later, it was found that 110 more candidates were selected than the posts available and other irregularities were also committed, he said, adding it was found that candidates were selected on the basis of false certificates.
