Now, police verification must for new jobs in semi-govt, coop sector & aided sector

Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala cabinet, chaired by Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan, on Wednesday decided to make it mandatory for all those getting jobs in the semi-government, aided educational institutions, cooperative sector and other quasi-government bodies to undergo a police verification and get a clean chit.

Earlier, this procedure was only required for state and Central government jobs.

According to the new proposed rules, a police verification certification has to be obtained within a month of joining the job.

This new law comes in the wake of widespread detection of frauds in various cooperative banks in the state in recent times.
