The Central Government Press Information Bureau today issued a public warning that in order to trick candidates, several websites have been created with a name similar to Ministry of Education programs such as www. sarvashiksha.online, https://samagra.shikshaabhiyan.co.in, and https://shikshaabhiyan.org.in.
These websites are similar in layout, content and presentation to the original websites and mislead candidates, he said.
“These websites offer employment opportunities to potential candidates and mislead job applicants by the layout, content and presentation of the website in a manner similar to the original website and ask for money to referees for applications.While these websites have been brought to the attention of the Department of School Education and Literacy, there may be other websites/social media accounts promising jobs and demanding money for the recruitment process,” an official statement read.
The center asked the public not to submit applications on the fake websites and locate the original websites to protect their interests.
“The general public is hereby advised to avoid applying for job vacancies on these websites and ensure that the websites are authorized by visiting the official website of the relevant department/personal application/ phone call/email to protect their own interest. Anyone applying on these websites will do so at their own risk and be responsible for the consequences thereof,” the statement added.
