High court grants SPOs time to apply for AISF jobs
| Friday | 12th January, 2018
The applicants moved the court after they could not file their job applications online due to technical glitches.
GUWAHATI: The Gauhati high court has directed the state government to facilitate job applications of 19 former special police officers (SPOs) for the post of constables in the Assam Industrial Security Force .
In 2015, the state government discharged hundreds of SPOs with a promise to hire them in the 3rd AISF battalion.
Since then, almost 700 out-of-work SPOs have had to resort to odd jobs to earn their livelihood.
"The respondent in the meantime should facilitate the former SPOs to furnish their applications in the online system if they satisfy the eligibility criteria, specified by the advertisement," the court ordered.
