Pharma recruitment: LoP wants min to clear air over vacancies

THE GOAN NETWORK | MAY 24, 2024, 01:26 AM IST

Leader of Opposition Yuri Alemao has said that Labour & Employment Minister Atanasio Monserrate must clarify if vacancies advertised in Maharashtra by Indoco and Encube Ethicals for their Goa plants were notified by the two companies on the portal of Goa Employment Exchange and whether the government had informed the local youths about the same.

Reacting to the controversy of walk-in interviews scheduled in Maharashtra by two pharma companies having their plants in Goa, the opposition released a screenshot of the Government of Goa portal wherein Encube Ethicals showed “No vacancies available”.

“It is mandatory for the private firms and companies to notify the vacancies on the portal of the Employment Exchange. Today when I checked on the government portal, Encube Ethicals shows 'no vacancies exist', while there is no clarity on the exact number of vacancies and posts available with Indoco," stated Yuri.

He added: "It has once again come to the fore that the BJP government in Goa has absolutely no control over the recruitment process of the private companies operating in Goa. There is no mechanism in place to control the rampant violation of rules by various companies while recruiting employees.”

Demanding that the Labour & Employment Minister must order a high-level inquiry on all the recruitments done by the private companies in the last few years and place the report in the upcoming session of the Goa Legislative Assembly, Yuri said, “Let everyone know the exact employment scenario in the private sector in Goa. The government has time and again tried to mislead the MLAs and Goans by giving false and incorrect replies and information in the Goa Legislative Assembly. The much-hyped Mega Job Fair turned out to be a huge failure. Government has no mechanism to check the Goans employed in the private sector.”
