Kerala High Court flays youths in the state for their obsession with government jobs

KOCHI Aug 4: The Kerala High Court came down heavy on Kerala youth for their obsession with government jobs, observing that such a practice exists only in the state, Indian Express reported.

“Will the prestige and status of an MSc holder go down the drain if he rears two goats and obtains income from it? This attitude is only found among Keralites. But they are ready to do any work outside the state,” the court said.

“About 75% of the state government’s revenue is spent on disbursing salary and other benefits,” a division bench headed by Justice Alexander Thomas observed orally. The court made the observation after dismissing a petition by a candidate who lost his job after failing to submit an experience certificate before public service commission (PSC) in time.

Practice of depending on govt jobs should be avoided, says High Court

On a lighter note, the court said the power to print currency notes is vested with the central government and not with the state. The practice of depending on government jobs should be avoided.
