About 400 employees sacked by Dept of Posts in Gujarat

Over 100 employees of India Post gathered at Gujarat University on Friday to protest against the department's sacking of around 400 employees in the state on December 23 -allegedly without giving any reason. Sacked employees said that each of them was asked to sign a paper by superiors accepting his termination from job with immediate effect with claim to a month's salary.

A senior postal department official in Ahmedabad said, "The termination orders of around 400 employees was directly issued from the central office.Nobody was consulted at local level.' He added that the headquarters of India Post had ordered vigilance inquiry into 2013-14 recruitments following several complaints. After the inquiry, the whole recruitment has been cancelled, affecting personnel across the country.

The sacked employees say they had been recruited in Group C (clerical) and Group B (officer) cadres in April this year.Advertisement for the posts had appeared in June 2014, and the preliminary competitive exam had taken place in November last year. They had been allocated their postings on June 1.

Some fraud candidates sunk the ship with genuine candidates.
