Corruption and Illegal Recruitmen of Staff at Doordarshan Bhopal

I want to report the corruption and irregularities in the recruitment process of contractual employees at DD News, Regional News Unit, Doordarshan Kendra Bhopal. 

Contractuale employees are appointed illegally by higher officers by abusing power and position at Regional News Unit (RNU), Doordarshan Kendra, Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh without following the recruitment process of Prasar Bharati.

Vacancy for 13 Contractual staff for 8 positions at Regional News Unit Bhopal Doordarshan was published on 23/01/2014 (Copy Attached). Result was announced on 04/03/2014 on DD Bhopal website. No any waiting list was published.All candidates except Shri Shoukat Khan (Library Assistant) joined the office during March

and April 2014. Shoukat Khan did not join the office because he was selected in some other post in other organization. As such the position of Library Assistant kept vacant for 6-7 months as the person who was selected did not join.

After 6-7 months in August-September 2014, Mr Rajeev Jain took charge as Director of RNU Bhopal. He without following recruitment process of Prasar Bharati, appointed a candidate named Shri Md Israil Khan on the position of Library Assistant. He was not selected in the final result list (attached) published in March 2014. And there was no waiting list published.

Shri Md Israil Khan was recruited and given appointment by Mr. Rajeev Jain illegally after 6-7 months when recruitment process was already finished.

No public notice, announcement and circular was published in Prasar Bharti/ DD Bhopal Websiteabout this illegal recruitment.

In March 2015, this candidate was also given very high appraisal marks and contract extension (copy attached) by the same official without even him completing one year along witha other candidates (who completed one year).

This is sheer misuse of power and position by officials for their vested interest, undermining  the process of recruitment of contractual staff under Prasar Bharati guidelines.

This unfair and partial behavior by senior officials destroyed career of qualified and hardworking candidates and prevailed an environment of dissatisfaction and harassment of employees.

I have also been harassed by the top officials at Doordarshan, and intimidated indirectly to not expose the matter.

I request you to look into the matter and take necessary action against responsible officials involved in recruitment scam in DD News Bhopal.
