The department received over 9 lakh applications, but just for around 14,000 posts notified under this recruitment notice.

Sometimes it seems very contemptible to see the employment system of India. Whether it is a case of unemployment or underemployment, both are lamenting our country. Even though 65% of the country’s population lies under the age of 35, it’s still struggling with the critical employment condition. It seems like an omen for upcoming generation.
It’s an addition to the case of underemployment coming from Madhya Pradesh where over nine lakh aspirants have applied for the 14,000 police constable post. Surprisingly, of the applied aspirants it has been found that they are holding degrees of PhD, postgraduate, and engineering.
According to the data released by Madhya Pradesh Professional Exam Board (MPPEB), there are 1.19 lakh graduates, 14,562 post graduates, 9,629 engineers and 12 with PhD. Despite the fact that the minimum qualification for this post is higher secondary, these people with higher degrees have applied for it. In total,
Besides this mass, there are around 5 lakh students who have passed class XII have also applied for the post. Also, there are about 2.58 lakh aspirants belonging to scheduled castes and scheduled tribes. The examination is scheduled to be held on July 17.
However, this is not the first time that overqualified people applied for these types of posts. Last year, around 12,000 engineers applied for the post of forest guard. Also, this is not the first state, last year in UP a similar news came where many graduates, post graduates, and engineers applied for a sweeper post.
This problem should be scrutinized by the government. If we want to walk on the path of development then the whole country should work in harmony. And the talent which required years to develop should not go in vain by taking low-grade jobs.
