The Madras High Court has recommended the Union and the State Governments to promote entrepreneurship and provide youngsters with self-employment opportunities.
The Court’s remarks came in response to recent incidents in which a sitting judge received a forged interview invitation and many instances of youngsters being deceived by job swindlers.
A Division Bench of Justice N Kirubakaran and Justice S Vaidyanathan stated, “Recently, several unemployed youth have been deceived by job racketeers and antisocial elements, who are taking advantage of the pandemic, which has resulted in thousands of job losses. The approach of minting money by utilizing the unemployment crisis has been mushrooming in recent years.”
The Court recalled a recent incident that occurred in High Court premises, in which an accused pretended to be a High Court employee and collected money from people under the guise of getting jobs at the Madras High Court.
The Court further ordered that the progress of the investigation and the status of the trial be reported to the High Court registrar on a regular basis, and cautioned the Police officials involved that they would face criminal charges if they failed to perform their duties.
