The fake notice further stated that the application window for these purported vacancies would be open from April 15 to May 14, adding an air of urgency to the false information.

Government job seekers are strongly cautioned against falling prey to deceptive information spread through social media channels. It is imperative to always verify the authenticity of recruitment notifications by referring to the official websites of the respective exam conducting bodies or recruiting organizations. Relying solely on unverified sources can lead to misinformation and potential fraud.
