RECRUITMENT RACKET BUSTED AT TATA STEEL GATE
A major Recruitment racket was busted yesterday at the Tata Steel Visitor Gate Pass Section at the General Office Gate of Jamshedpur Plant.
It was around noon when the Tata Steel Security personnel got suspicious as regards the behavior of a group of 7 persons at the Visitor Gate Pass Section. On probing, it was found that six of them were carrying Appointment letters on the letterhead having ‘Tata Steel’ written on them but these were all fake. On further probing it was discovered that six persons had paid money to the fraudsters who cheated them by handing over fake appointment letters. One of the fraudsters present at the site was handed over to Bistupur Police Station. Police has filed an FIR, arrested one of the fraudsters and is probing further to bust the entire racket.
It has come to our notice that such incidents are often committed by fraudsters on the pretext of providing jobs in Tata companies in Jamshedpur and Kalinganagar and they dupe the unemployed youth by taking money from them and handing over fake appointment letters.
Tata Steel wishes to bring to the Notice of all concerned that certain fraudsters are misleading and duping unemployed youths by claiming themselves to be the authorized job agency of the Company or employee and taking money from them for issuing fake appointment letters. The Company wishes to clarify that it does not take any money or fees / facilitation charges in lieu of employment and notice to this effect has also been placed on career page of the Company website, “careers.tatasteel.com”.
Speaking about the incident, Mr. Gopal Prasad Choudhary, Chief Security & Brand Protection, Tata Steel, expressed his satisfaction on the fraud being exposed. “I hope that the news of this racket being busted is spread all around so that people remain vigilant and not fall prey to such scams. We have had such rackets busted in Kalinganagar also with the help of the Police and we are working with law enforcement agencies to prevent such scams”, he added.
