Petition Closed

End the policy of not considering job seekers who have their graduation in distance mode.

This petition had 9 supporters

We are living in times where India's most sought after Civil services allow applicants to write exam who meet their eligibility criteria wherein there is no mention of which mode has one completed his/her graduation. They don't discriminate on the basis of what mode have you completed your studies in. 

On the contrary, there are any number of "elite" recruiters whose discriminatory policy of not even considering the application of job seekers who have completed their education in distance mode, is beyond my understanding.

There are certain unavoidable circumstances which force an individual to uncontinue their studies in regular mode of education. This, at no point of time, should mean that they are essentially incapable of performing their task better than their counterparts who have their degrees in full-time mode.

Moreover, there are any number of ways by which one's suitability for a particular position can be judged like written test, GD, PI, and what not. But, simply rejecting their application forms merely because the person has a graduation degree in some mode of education other than the regular one is denying them of their rights to compete and prove their competence at the first place.

I, on the behalf of all such job seekers and the potential job seekers, urge the authorities concerned to do away with this long-standing malpractice. I also request all the recruiters to offer us a level-playing field wherein we will see who deserves what.

With a hope more than the pain I have been subjected to by facing a rejection even before I entertain the idea of applying for a decent position, I urge you all to sign this petition and spread the word. Let's make our unequivocal plea heard.
