The worsening condition of employment has once again raised uncomfortable questions when 75,000 applications for the post of 30 peons in Directorate of Economics and Statistics of the Chattisgarh government compelled the authorities to cancel the exam scheduled on August 30.
An unexpected surge in the applications left the officials astounded who were ill-prepared to conduct the test for the Grade-D government post on the given day.

While talking to hindustantimes, Amitabh Panda, commissioner of the department, said that around 70,000 applications were received online and over 5,000 through the post.
Interestingly, the recruitment eligibility criterion was qualification up to Class V. However, “several engineers and post-graduates in arts and science also applied for the job”, said Panda.

He, however, said the decision about holding the examination would be taken after few months since necessary arrangements have to take place.
Commenting on the huge magnitude of existing unemployment, noted academician Jawahar Surisetti pressed on the need of awareness in other sectors at the high-school level.
