New Delhi, Sep 18: Coal India Limited or CIL is set to begin biggest recruitment drive ever and is reportedly planning to hire around 9,000 personnel.

A Economic Times report quoted a senior Coal India executive as saying that out of the 9,000 vacancies to be announced, 4,000 would be executive cadre. Out of these 4,000 CIL executive cadre recruitment, 900 would be through advertisements and interview based in the junior category while 400 would be through campus recruitment.

This announcement comes a month after the CIL has issued a notification warning against fake vacancies being reported in one of its subsidaries. Last month, reports were doing the round that CIL's subsidiary company named South Central Coalfields Limited (SSCL) had invited applications for 88,585 vacancies.

Coal India Limited then said that the fraud is being conducted by some mischievous elements and the fake recruitment notification was circulated.

"It has come to our notice that, recently an employment notice for recruitment of 88585 posts was issued in the name of South Central Coalfields Ltd (SCCL) which has also designed a web page under the link www.scclcil.inand claims to be a company under Coal India Limited and Ministry of Coal, Government of India," CIL then said.
