Staff Selection Commission has recently come out with a notification to recruit candidates for the posts of executive constable in Delhi Police for both male and female candidates. According to the official notification, the physical endurance tests and health tests will be carried out by Delhi Police whereas SSC will take care of the computer based recruitment test and the merit list based on that on the basis of which candidates will be appointed by the Delhi Police Department. This is often said in India that in order to get a government job in our country you need to pay something to the concerned authority since without that, your skills do not matter much to the government. Police departments over the states and also Delhi Police are also accused of the same and it often leads to the conception in the minds of the candidates that they have to opay something in order to gain something in retur
Constables in Delhi Police: Bribe, really?
This is an issue that can never be unearthed completely because of the very nature of the activity we are talking about. It is something illegal and nobody will come forward to take the responsibility for the same. The problem lies in the fact that even the bribe giver keeps quiet though he or she knows that it is illegal but in order to get the job done, they pay the bribe to the concerned official. Myriads of cases have come to light in the past decade regarding payment of bribe by candidates of government organizations to get selected. Obviously, it is never official since it is some of the employees who do this and not the whole organization. Obviously, this tarnishes the image of the whole organization but at the same time, you need to keep in mind that these people do not care about the organization as they hanker after monetary benefits only
So, what is the reality then? You are not supposed to pay any bribe in order to get selected in any government job. This goes against the very nature of fair selection and natural justice. Delhi Police is not an exception. Yes, instances have come to light in the past that there have been cases of wrongdoing while giving clearance for medical fitness or physical endurance test for the post but the organization as a whole obviously does not support this. Your selection is based on your performance in the physical endurance test and once you qualify in that, the computer based recruitment test to be carried out by SSC. Once you are selected provisionally, your detailed medical examination will be conducted by the government in order to check your suitability for a strenuous job like this. There are multiple chances of corruption in any of these three stages. You need to be alert and report any wrongdoing to the Anti Corruption branch of Delhi Police
The fact is that we give encouragement to people who seek undue favors from us. If we take a step, they are bound to stop. Delhi Police as an organization strives to ensure fair selection in order to get the best talent available in the country for the post. It is our duty to give that chance to Delhi Police and help it recruit people who can do something to control the crime rate in Delhi. Horrifying cases of rapes and molestation have made Delhi the rape capital of India. It is time we take a stand and help the system clean itself up. Next time you get a person asking for bribe, dodge it carefully and report the same immediately. Keep faith in your abilities and you can do wonders
All the best!!
