Bole toh, these Munnabhais grab IT, BPO jobs

This is the problem I had highlighted in my previous article (Indian Call Centre:Boom or Doom:Concern Over Showing Cracks) about Indian BPO industry. We need proper recruitment procedure. All the BPO guys especially people who is going to deal with financial business should go through proper security clearance. We need strict laws for any cyber crime.

Any one can argue with me saying, well in fact one of my friend who is operation head in one MNC call centre in India has come up with this point,

“No matter what the prospective punishment there will always be people who will trade information for money.”

So for them I want clear that, it’s correct that No matter what the prospective punishment there will always be people who will trade information for money. But I am sure it will reduce the crime rate. If there will be strict laws and rules, people will follow it, people who don’t follow they will be at risk of getting strict punishment, so at least some people won’t do this sort of things, when they think about punishment.

If we really want to safe this industry we at least need these three things;

  • We need strict regulation for BPO employees.
  • We need standard employment procedure for all BPO employees.
  • We need strict rules for any cyber crimes.

BANGALORE: They are the Munnabhais of the IT and BPO businesses. A qualified guy walks in for the job interview, but when the offer’s made, it’s an illqualified bloke who takes up the job. All too frequently, they get away with the con act.

Impersonation is an issue that just about every company faces today. And experts say it’s become possible on account of the massive scales of recruitment that makes close scrutiny a difficult task.

Some companies conduct 150 interviews a day.

Anjan Dutta, CEO of recruitment company Career Graph, says that in telephonic interviews, impersonation is in the range of 5% to 7%, while in face-to-face interviews it’s about 1-2% of the total number of candidates interviewed.

“Wipro sacked about 50 people last year for such impersonation and other kinds of faking, IBM sacked 6 and Accenture 5. Typically, only 50% of impersonators are eventually identified and sacked, the others continue in the job,” he says.

BS Murthy, CEO of recruitment firm Human-Capital, says such incidents were rampant between 1998 and 2000 when US companies used to hire Indian engineers through telephonic interviews.

“That trend is now resurfacing, predominantly in contract and temporary hiring wherein rules are often relaxed,” he says.

US promoting terrorism in Iraq: Khamenei

Even if I take your word that USA is promoting terrorism then you are producing terrorist to kill innocents right Mr.Khamenei? make Sense? Don’t talk rubbish! Who is promoting Hamas and training them?

Iran’s supreme leader has accused the US of promoting terrorism and religious division in Iraq and called Jordan’s king one of Washington’s “dependent” rulers.

“The reality there (in Iraq) is occupiers who intervene in all Iraqi internal affairs. Worse and more dangerous is that, based on plenty of evidence, they (Americans) promote terrorism in Iraq in the name of Shiite and Sunni Islam,” said Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

Khamenei did not elaborate or provide details about how Washington has promoted terrorism.

The United States accuses the predominantly Shiite Islamic republic of interfering in Iraq and sending money and infiltrators across its porous 1,600 km border to support the insurgency there.

Tehran has denied the charges and says it has no interest in sparking instability in Iraq.

“They (the US) follow the policy of pitting the Iraqi people against the Iraqi people. They want to sow pessimism among Shiite and Sunni Muslims. Our Iraqi brothers are in dire need of unity,” Khamenei added.

British Government Accused of Favoring Muslims

Right or Wrong? Only Time will say !!

CBN News — The Church of England is accusing the British government of favoring Muslims, while side-lining Christians.

In a scathing letter, the church says the government is showing preferential treatment to Muslims.

The church said in some cases taxpayer money is used to promote Islam.

The British government is pushing to integrate minority faiths into society.

Author and journalist, David Virtue, has tackled Anglican issues for years.

He says the government’s multi-faith efforts are a big mistake since 72 percent of Britons call themselves Christians.

Teacher axed over her veil

Good to see Muslim Council of Britain said that Miss Azmi was wrong to insist on covering her face.

A YORKSHIRE teacher has been suspended after refusing to remove her veil while teaching.

Aishah Azmi, 24, was asked to take off her veil after youngsters said they found it hard to understand English lessons because they could not see her lips.

The school, Headfield C of E Junior at Dewsbury, has 529 pupils aged seven to 11 and many are from ethnic backgrounds where English is not a first language.

Miss Azmi was told she was allowed to wear her veil along corridors and in the staff room but would have to remove it for teaching.

She was suspended after saying the veil was part of her cultural identity.

Kirklees Council education spokesman Jim Dodds said: “This is nothing to do with religion.

“We accepted the veil could be worn anywhere else in school but not in the classroom.”

The Muslim Council of Britain said Miss Azmi was wrong to insist on covering her face.

Dr Reefat Drabu said Muslim women were not required to wear even a headscarf in the presence of children.
