Regional Employment Officer SP Sharma will look into the matter, Uttar Pradesh Principal Secretary (Labour) Shailesh Krishna said.
Assistant Employment Officer Asha Arya said she closed the office on the evening of Mar 19 and when she returned the next day around 40-50 forms were lying outside.
The forms were kept near a window and someone must have taken them out, she said. "We always have record of persons who register themselves for employment. They are also issued a duplicate slip. So, the hue and cry raised over the issue is futile," Arya said.
Media reports say scores of forms were found in a trash can outside the one-room office of Amroha emply block.
