RTI exposes misuse of OBC certificates in Imphal


An RTI activist has revealed misuse of OBC certificates by sons and daughters of some high-ranking Government officials just to sneak into the state Home Department. Laishram Sanatombi of Yairipok Bishnunaha, Imphal East sought certain information through RTI from the state Home Deparment and the Imphal West Deputy Commissioner on the DPC held last year for recruitment of 72 women SI’s. While seeking information Sanatombi was able to discover about this. This was informed by RTI activist W Joykumar during a press conference held at Imphal on Monday. He also said that he appeared in the DPC with a high hope of becoming an SI.
