Chennai, Dec 26 (BPNS)

The Southern regional office of the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has lodged a complaint with the Tamil Nadu police on a gang conducting recruitment tests and interviews for various posts in AICTE. The southern regional officer of the AICTE, M. Sundaresan told media persons that the fraudsters were conducting recruitment tests and later interviews in five-star hotels.

He said that he has complained to the police on a test and subsequent interview that had taken place a few days ago and now on Sunday, 26th December 2021 one more interview is taking place at a five-star hotel in Chennai.

The AICTE came to know after several enquires had come regarding the posting order and other formalities with most of the aspirants convinced that the AICTE had directly conducted the recruitment. Most of the candidates who had fallen into the traps were youngsters from poor backgrounds and hailing from rural areas of the state like Thiruvannamalai, Salem, Madurai, Kancheepuram, and Vellore districts.

Sources in the AICTE told IANS that while there are only 13 sanctioned posts in AICTE Chennai, the scamsters are announcing 18 vacancies in each district of the state, and tests are conducted at various parts of the state. The aspirants were required to clean shave and trim the nails properly before appearing for the interview.

To give the scam look like a genuine one, the fraudsters are using the logo of AICTE and the officials have informed the police that the scamsters may be collecting the bank details to collect money from the aspirants and requested the police to immediately intervene and to prevent the job aspirants from losing money.
