'Do you have any scheme to check unemployment among engg graduates'
graduates, HC asks HRD Ministry

Chennai, Oct 27 (PTI) The Madras High Court today asked the HRD Ministry if there was any scheme available with it to deal with unemployment engineering graduates in the country.

Justice N Kirubakaran was hearing a petition by S K Natarajan seeking a direction to the state government to implement the Tamil Nadu State Level Placement Programme in top IT firms in a fair and effective manner for holding a common campus recruitment programme for students of all engineering colleges, including his daughter.

The petitioner sought a direction against the conduct of such interviews only in select colleges.

Impleading the ministry, the judge said a larger issue is involved in the petition with regard to the opening of more number of engineering colleges and production of more number of engineering graduates, resulting in the problem of unemployment.

"The ministry is directed to answer as to whether there is any scheme available with the department to deal with unemployment problem of the engineering graduates in our country and if it is so, what is the scheme?" the judge said.

The judge also impleaded the All India Council for Technical Education in the matter with a direction to file a report on the number of engineering colleges in the country, students admitted, and their employability by November 7.

19 posts of peons, sweepers: Techie, postgrads on 9,500 applicants’ list


VACANCIES IN JALANDHAR DISTRICT COURTS; 500 JOB APPLICANTS AGAINST ONE POST

JALANDHAR: Information technology (IT) diploma holders, graduates and even postgraduates are among the more than 9,500 people who have responded to an advertisement seeking applications for the posts of 18 peons and a sweeper in the district courts here.

Interestingly, the eligibility criteria for the peon’s post (orderly, waterman, guard, gardener, etc) and a sweeper are a Class 8 certificate coupled with the ability to speak and write Punjabi, for a monthly salary of ₹16,880. The selected candidate will get a basic grade pay of ₹6,200 for three years, as per the state government orders.

Amanveer Singh, a diploma holder in mechanical engineering who is now pursuing BTech, said he is eager to get the job. “I need a job urgently. I have given many interviews but no one is ready to pay me over ₹10,000 a month. If I get this government job, my future is secure.”

Jalandhar-based Surinder Kumar, a postgraduate in political science who is working in a car agency for ₹15,000 a month, said he knows the job isn’t commensurate with his qualifications, but he doesn’t have any option. “This is a permanent job, and I am not getting any better offers,” he told this reporter.

While 10 of these posts are for general candidates, two are reserved for ex-servicemen, one for a sportsman and the rest for Scheduled Castes, Backward Classes and other reserved categories in the age group of 18 to 37 years. The selections are being conducted through interviews. Due to the large number of candidates, officials set up six benches to conduct interviews over a period of 10 days. The last date for the interview was Monday. Candidates said they were asked about their personal details, including qualifications, parents, residential address, and any criminal case in the interview.

The candidates were told to bring their original testimonials, photocopies of documents, and photo ID proofs on the date of the interview.

Although the advertisement received a response from across the state, most of candidates are from Jalandhar and Sangrur.

Despite several attempts, senior officials refused to share the exact number of applicants on the plea that the interview process is still going on.
