NEW DELHI: A fake website which has attempted to imitate the official website of the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has been created to defraud gullible people, authorities cautioned on Friday.
In a statement, the DMRC said some social media accounts are also trying to misguide job aspirants by promising employment opportunities in the DMRC. A fake website - https://dmrccareer.in - is offering false employment opportunities to gullible respondents, it said.
"It is asking for money from the respondents and some people may have become the victim of cyber fraud by this web link," the statement said. The general public is hereby warned that DMRC's employment notifications appear only on its official website -- www.delhimetrorail.com.
"Delhi Metro's employment processes are done as per the government rules. The recruitment process is fully computerised and transparent, and selection is purely based on the merit of the candidates. The official website also warns against such fraudulent activities," the DMRC said.
The job aspirants are advised to exercise "extreme caution" while applying for job opportunities with the DMRC, and do so only through the official website, as no other such platform has been authorised to carry out such a process on behalf of it, the statement said. While, this particular fake link has come to our notice, there may be more, promising jobs in DMRC, it added.
"The DMRC has initiated necessary action against this website as per the laws in place. The general public is also requested to immediately bring to our notice any such fake recruitment based online or offline activity, in the future," the statement said.
