Gujarat police go hi-tech to make recruitment process transparent

Gujarat police go hi-tech to make recruitment process transparent
To bring in transparency in the recruitment process, the Gujarat police department has got its hands on hi-tech gadgets such as radio frequency identification (RFID) chips and high-definition CCTV cameras.

Starting on Thursday, police is conducting physical fitness test of aspirants for 8,450 constable posts (which includes a 800-meter run) simultaneously at 16 centres across the state.

Around 32,000 candidates appeared for the tests on Thursday, said joint commissioner of police Manoj Agrawal.

"To bring in transparency and accuracy, we have introduced RFID chips, which are tied to the ankle of every candidate. The chip marks the exact time taken to finish the run. This data is stored in our server. If anyone has a doubt, he can cross-check it. It is lot better than manual recording, the accuracy of which can be doubted," he said.

"The RFID chips are primarily used in international marathons. We have tied up with a Swedish firm to bring those international standards in our tests, leaving no scope for any doubt about the authenticity of results."

Further, high definition CCTV cameras cover the proceedings at every centre. "If some issue crops up in future, we can check the recordings," said Agrawal.
