Kerala: Police verification mandatory for new jobs in semi-govt bodies, cooperative & aided sectors

Thiruvananthapuram: The Government of Kerala has determined to make police verification mandatory for recruitments to aided educational institutions, public sector enterprises as well as cooperative banks and societies.   The meeting of the state Cabinet, held on Wednesday, also determined to make this applicable for jobs in devaswom boards, welfare boards and development authorities.  

The practice of police verification to check whether there is any criminal case pending against an employee has been existing in the government service for a long. The same system is now being extended to other sectors. 

The timeline for police verification process should be completed within one month after the recruitment. The rules and regulations and statutes of the respective institutions and organisations would be amended to incorporate the clause for police verification for jobs. The development comes in the wake of large-scale complaints that many persons, who have been either convicted or embroiled in criminal cases, are getting employed in many organisations coming under the state government.

Those who are seen involved in criminal cases are kept out of the govt service till they prove their innocence. Those who were punished for criminal offences are dismissed from the government service.
