IB recruitment 2020: PIB Fact Check warns of fake job advertisement.

New Delhi:

A day after the government's media arm fact-checked a recruitment notice of Intelligence Bureau (IB) and called it out as fake, another department has contradicted it. The Employment Newspaper of the Information and Broadcasting Ministry said today the Intelligence Bureau had confirmed that it is a genuine employment notice.

As of now, the Press Information Bureau (PIB) tweet that had called the notice fake has been removed.

The job advertisement says that 2,000 vacancies for the post of Assistant Central Intelligence Officer (ACIO) are to be filled in the Intelligence Bureau and candidates need to be graduates.

The Employment News says in its tweet that recruitments for the Intelligence Bureau will begin on Saturday.

Recruitments in the Intelligence Bureau are done through the Union Public Service Commission, Staff Selection Commission and all India recruitment examinations for some posts.

The IB recruitment exams are announced on the website of the Home Ministry.

On December 16, PIB Fact Check had tweeted that this recruitment notice is a fake one.
