The government cautions professionals on recruitment fraud

Many people wish for a government job as it has a lot of benefits when compared to private jobs. Government jobs not only offer job security, but also provide various benefits to employees. As a lot of people crave government jobs, fraudsters have come up with various tricks to cheat job seekers and make quick money. This has happened many times in the past. Fraudsters cheat innocent people in the name of providing them a job and loot them.

The government recently warned Ayush professionals and job seekers on fake jobs posted online. The notice was issued by the Ministry of AYUSH in the wake of fake and suspicious advertisements for the recruitment of AYUSH professionals.

This comes after fraudsters circulated fake recruitment notices for AYUSH professionals on social media platforms. Fraudsters have released notifications, which look similar to government job notices. The main intention of sending this notification is to collect money from innocent job seekers. These fraud agencies take payments or fees from candidates, through online payment methods. They also use logos and images of the Government of India along with the fake addresses similar to that of the Ministry to make people trust them.

In connection with this fraud, the Ministry of AYUSH (Ayurveda, Yoga & Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha, Sowa Rigpa and Homoeopathy) has issued an advisory to people. It said in a statement, “The public in general and AYUSH professionals, in particular, are hereby cautioned that in recent past, some fraudulent/ suspicious advertisements for recruitment of AYUSH professionals have come up in the electronic media which seek to draw out payment in the form of “Registration Fees” etc. from gullible individuals. Such fraudulent/ suspicious notices are issued typically by agencies with misleading names that sound like government bodies, and seek to elicit payments (described as “fees” of various types) through online payment methods."

It further said, "One such fraudulent/ suspicious advertisement that has come to the notice of the Ministry of AYUSH, Government of India appeared on the blog-publishing platform “Blogspot” in the name of AYUSHGRAM BHARAT, which claims to be the NRHM WELLNESS CENTER INDIA. The link to the advertisement is

How to avoid this kind of fraud?

In order to avoid this kind of fraud, the Ayush Ministry has asked the general public and Ayush professionals to note that the Ministry of AYUSH and its subordinate organizations constantly follow the formal procedures prescribed by the Government of India for the recruitment processes. There will be formal announcements in the official websites (which are hosted on the NIC/ gov.in platform) of the respective organizations.”

The Ministry has said that it does not have any connection with the recruitment agencies that are misleading people.

So, before trusting any advertisements, you must crosscheck the facts stated and verify the identity/ authenticity of individuals/recruitment agencies who issue such advertisements.
