New Delhi, December 2: Three newly-selected physical education teachers received their appointment letter on November 30 by the Delhi government, but with a twist. The letter states that they will have to join on September 1 and October 19.

According to the appointment letter, if the selected candidates fail to report on the mentioned date, their appointment would be termed as cancelled. When being inquired about this, Education Director Sanjay Goel said, as The New Indian Express reported, “This is a clerical error, I will check, and this will not happen again.” Fourth Arrest Made in Delhi Teacher's Murder Case

The selection of the candidates was carried out by the Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board, and the orders were uploaded on the website too.

In one of the appointments to Vikas, the order states, “He/she is further directed to report to his/her place of posting latest by 01/09/2018 failing which his/her appointment shall stand cancelled.” He was to be appointed on a provisional basis.

Similarly, another selected candidate Meenakshi Singh – to be appointed for two years at the Government Girls Secondary School in Sangam Vihar – was asked to report on September 1. On the other hand, Rakesh Mohan Kothari was asked to report to work on October 19. He has been appointed at a government-run co-ed Sarvodaya Vidyalaya in the Rampura area of Delhi.

Reacting on the error, BJP state president Manoj Tiwari said, “These people are of criminal intent. This recruitment process is a scam, and it should be probed by a judge.”
