Kolkata: The West Bengal Government has issued a showcause notice to 39 fire-operators-cum-drivers in the Fire Services department appointed during the tenure of the erstwhile Left Front Government.
"They have been asked to satisfy the government with all necessary documents required for appointment in the post applied for or face the consequence," state`s Fire Services Minister Javed Khan said here today.
Khan said that altogether 156 persons were appointed towards the end of the previous government`s tenure.
Soon after the Mamata Banerjee Government took over, a four-member committee was appointed to probe irregularities in the recruitment.
"Anomalies have been found in 39 out of 156 appointments in the department," the minister said adding steps would be taken if they fail to reply to the showcause notice issued by the department.
