NEW DELHI/MADHEPURA: An FIR has been filed by Alstom against some unscrupulous websites/agencies namely https://melsorg.in/. It is alleged that this portal is fraudulently offering job opportunities at the Madhepura Electric Locomotive Private Limited. The portal is spreading the fraudulent offering through the internet and WhatsApp messages. Alstom has filed an FIR with the police in Madhepura.

The information about this fake website was busted by RailNews on Friday the 20th July 2018 following a tip off from one of RailNews Readers. The details of the fake website https://melsorg.in/ were sufficiently captured immediately and appropriately informed to Additional Member-Production Units, Railway Board through an official email.

RailNews had also obtained the entire list of fake vacant posts advertised by the fraudulent impostors of job racket, and have sent it for verification by Ministry of Railways (Readers can read it here: MELS VACANCY DETAILS).

Acting promptly on the information, Railway Board officials immediately alerted the Alstom India heads and internalised the message to the Railway Vigilance, Personnel (HR Dept.) and the East Central Railway officials to be alert on the fake website and recruitment and accordingly conduct departmental probe into it.

According to Alstom, all the information provided in the website viz.https://melsorg.in/ are incorrect. The company has cautioned job aspirants to be wary of such fake employment agencies.
