Assam: Ulfa-I terms OIL’s recruitment policy as “biased”

Describing Oil India Limited (OIL)’s recruitment process as ‘biased’, the United Liberation Front of Asom – Independent (Ulfa-I) has asked the oil major to make the recruitment process discrimination-free and to give chance to every eligible indigenous candidate of the state.


Recently, OIL had relased an employment notification for the recruitment of 120 Junior Assistants (Clerk-cum-Computer Operator) from OIL’s production and exploration areas in the districts of Dibrugarh, Tinsukia, Sivasagar and Charaideo in Assam and Changlang district in Arunachal Pradesh. The last date of online application is August 15, 2021.


“The indigenous people of Assam have actual rights over the natural resources of Assam. They have every right to enjoy every benefit from the industries which has been built on these resources be it as jobs or other benefits. But we have seen that Oil India Limited has recently issued a notification for the recruitment of candidates from only Dibrugarh, Tinsukia, Sivasagar and Charaideo in Assam and Arunachal Pradesh’s Changlang district. The candidates of other districts have been deprived of the opportunity. Therefore we, the Ulfa-Independent oppose the biased behaviour of Oil India Limited. Instead of giving opportunities to candidates from only these four districts, OIL should give fair chance to each eligible indigenous candidate of Assam,” Ulfa-I vice chairman and commander in-chief Paresh Baruah (Paresh Asom) said in a signed statement to the media on Sunday.
