Vying for a govt job?
Manoj’s success compels a review
Jind, November 1
Seeking a government job is a tough task these days. At the same time, jobs in public sector are not very popular among the educated youth, mainly because of lack of exposure, besides being less remunerative.
This is the reason why youth like Manoj Brar of Singhpura village of the district are self-employed. Manoj is already managing a private modern dairy farm with about 70 cattle and supplying a large quantity of milk daily while many of his age may either be doing a small time job or awaiting an interview call.

I applied for a passport vide receipt no. 13751, department receipt no. 5657, file no. IDCHDZ45235107, on 17.4.2007, with the Regional Passport Office, Chandigarh.

Even as six months have passed I have not received any response in this regard.
