NSUI accuses PRTC of fraud and corruption in army recruitment


BY TC News Desk

Agartala, July 15, 2023: The National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) has alleged that the Permanent Residential Certificate (PRTC) issued by the Tripura government is being misused by candidates from other states to apply for army jobs in Tripura. The NSUI has claimed that many youths who failed the army exam in their own states are paying money to get fake PRTC and appear for the interview in Tripura. The NSUI has also said that the PRTC has the signature of the Administrative Officer of Teliamura Sub-Divisional Ruler’s Office, which raises questions about the involvement of officials in the scam.

A delegation of NSUI led by state president Samrat Roy on Saturday met the Superintendent of Police of West District and submitted a memorandum demanding the cancellation of the ongoing recruitment process and legal action against those who have submitted applications with forged PRTC. The NSUI has also demanded immediate action from the government, warning that they will resort to further agitation if their demands are not met.

The NSUI has cited the example of a youth named Upendra Kumar Yadav, who hails from Bihar and has applied for the Staff Selection Commission General Duty (SSC GD) 2022-23 exam through PRTC, Tripura. The NSUI has said that Yadav had also applied for a job outside his state earlier, which shows that he is not a permanent resident of Tripura.

The government has decided to recruit 700 vacancies for Tripura in the army, and PRTC is required to prove the domicile status of the candidates. The NSUI has alleged that this rule is being violated by many youths from other states who are taking advantage of the fake PRTC and depriving the local youths of their rightful opportunities. The medical examination for the SSC GD exam is scheduled to start from July 17.
