No Government Jobs for Smokers

No Government Jobs for Smokers
 
Rajasthan State Government has announced that government jobs wouldn’t be given to those who smoke or consume tobacco. Only non-smokers and non-tobacco users will be given employment in state government services.

BJP, under the leadership of Chief Minister Vasundara Raje, is currently in power in Rajasthan. The government had issued employment ads to fill up 182 vacancies in its Commercial Tax Department. A new condition has been imposed on applicants – they should be non-smokers and refrain from using tobacco. Those with these habits would be considered unfit for the posts.

Those looking for state government jobs in Rajasthan will have to henceforth give in writing that they neither smoke nor use tobacco products. The signed written assurance will have to accompany their job applications. The Government has said that the move is part of its ambitious plans to make Rajasthan a smoke-free state, with special emphasis on the fact that all the government employees must remain free from this habit.
