Job mela : GHMC to recruit about 20,000 people

Deviating from its core focus of maintaining cleanliness in the city, the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) will now act as a placement agency for private companies.

In a surprising decision taken during its meeting held on Wednesday, the GHMC Standing Committee has decided to conduct monthly job melas in each of the five zones in the GHMC limits from this month onwards. Briefing the media about the decision, GHMC Mayor Mohammad Majid Hussain said that the GHMC aims to recruit about 20,000 people through these job melas.

This month, through job melas in South Zone the GHMC plans to recruit 2,220 people for 10 companies. They are Apollo, Hetero, Global Innovcsource, Subhagruha, DTC, Reliance Communications, APR World, Vertex, The Mobile Store and GI Group. However, these companies will recruit staff on the positions of Phama Assistant, Customer Service Executives, Marketing or Business Development Executives and the qualification required for the candidates vary from 10th Class to degree.

The Mayor did not clarify as to who will bear the cost of these job melas. Usually, the private companies make payments to the placement agencies for such recruitments. However, the GHMC has not clarified whether it would receive similar payments from the companies for conducting monthly job melas.
