This is regarding a recruitment notification (possibly a fraud one) being given under the name of GCI Enterprises across all states in India.
The company (posing as a state government department) has been giving frequent advertisements in local news papers in almost all states/cities (Delhi, Meerut, Dehradun, Gujarat/Ahmedabad, UP, MP, Assam) of India which first appeared around October/November of 2009. Look for this notification which was given in the state of Andhra Pradesh in the name of Andhra Pradesh Grameen corporation of India Agriculture Forest Vigilance (GCI Enterprises) in a local newspaper on November 6, 2009.
For other states, the name Andhra Pradesh will be changed to that states’ name.
Since it didn’t ask to pay any fee for application (only a self addressed Rs.6 stamp is asked) and posed like a Government notification, many job aspirants were found to have applied for the said jobs.
It has to be noted that the address for sending the applications is present in Uttarakhand (even in the notification given in AP).
And now in January 2010, the said company started dispatching appointment letters (with www.agcienterprises.com link in the letter which doesn’t work) to those (most of the applicant’s) who applied. It also asked to pay some fee around Rs.3000.
One has to wonder how a company can recruit people without even taking an Interview or at least verifying the original certificates of the applicants’?
Why GCI Enterprise is a fake company?
One good reason to call GCI a fake company is because it mentioned in its notification that it will not accept applications made through normal post/registered post/speed post. Instead it asked to send using a private courier which itself can prove that the said company didn’t even have a registered office address.
This website Sai Digital Magazine has been warning time and again against such fake advertisements and will once again take this opportunity to warn job seekers to keep away from GCI and similar fraud companies. If you did send your application, you can do nothing about it now but what you can do is not to get involved with it any further (by not sending the asked DD amount).
