CHANDIGARH, December 15, 2016: With reference to a news item “Dead, retired PU employees on MC Poll duty” published on December 14, 2016 in a local English daily, it is clarified that the State Election Commission, UT, Chandigarh, has sought the roster of PU Employees for assigning the duties in the Municipal Corporation Elections.
The University spokesperson informed that the fresh roster was also provided by the University and the poll duties were assigned by the State Election Commission on the basis of the fresh roster provided by the University.
The oversight of sending the names of retired/deceased employees has been on part of the University officials and the same is deeply regretted.
