Madhya Pradesh's Forest Service recruitment department has landed in trouble after its online recruitment form was found to have a column demanding women applicants to state their chest size.
The criterion requires men to have a minimum chest size of 79 cm, while for women it was stated as 74 cm.
The state Public Service Commission had issued a notification for the recruitment of Forest Ranger jobs a few days back.
Congress MP Vibha Patel condemned the incident stating that asking women candidates for their chest size is nothing short of harassment.
Meanwhile, Madhya Pradesh Women and Child Development Minister, Archana Chitnis, stated that she is soon to talk to the forest minister and other officials to take further action on the issue.
You have brought this to my notice, I will talk to the forest minister and ministry officials and see what can be done:Madhya Pradesh Women and Child Development Minister Archana Chitnis on women forest ranger recruitment norms asking for female chest size pic.twitter.com/W1m4yeBQvg
