Mizoram aviation wing cautions aspiring airhostesses
Aizawl, Jul 7 (UNI) Mizoram government's Aviation wing of the General Administration department has warned aspiring air hostesses to take precautions while being offered training in this area by little-known companies.
The warning comes in the wake of a trainees recruitment drive by a private company which trains air hostesses which purportedly has its headquarters in Mumbai.
This company has intimated 70 girls in Mizoram that they have been selected to undergo training which would cost them Rs 92,000 for the full course, payable in installments.
The intimation letters said they need to report to their office in Shillong on June 10, 2006 with an amount of Rs 13,000 either in cash or by bank draft drawn in favour of the institution.
Officer on Special Duty at the Aviation Wing, Wing Commander J Lalhmingliana has cautioned these young women, saying they could face disappointment since the institution could not assure job placements.
''I would advise caution. I have tried to learn something about the Frankfinn Institute and from the little information that I have, I know the girls cannot have an assured career even if they complete their training. They may face disappointment after having spent a lot of money'', Lalhmingliana said.
Recently, there was another incident which police quickly investigated to prevent people from being duped from job advertisements in newspapers for a new political party which offered up to Rs 7000 a month for jobs with seemingly no educational requirements.
While the attempt to lure people in Aizawl was quickly stamped out, it surfaced in Lunglei town just last week.
