This was not a unique case. A year ago, in Uttar Pradesh, 2.3 million individuals looked for 368 low-level government occupations that required an essential instruction and capacity to ride a bike.
Rivalry for such occupations has ended up fiercer as general society segment's offer in formal work is declining.
