Believe it or not. A Rajasthan school owner received an admit card with his name and the photograph of US President Barack Obama pasted on it for a junior engineer examination conducted by the Centre in Delhi.
40-year-old Lalu Ram Meena was taken aback when he opened the letter which came by ordinary post to him on June 8 for the exam the next day for which he had never applied.
The card is duly signed by the authority with seal. It has a roll number – 2201000509 – and the examination centre was mentioned as being near Tuglakabad metro station in Badarpur.
The exam was for Part B electrical, in general engineering, conducted by central government's Staff Selection Commission.
"I was shocked to see the admit card in my name because I never applied for such a post.
"What was more shocking for me was the picture of US President Barack Obama as the candidate in the admit card," Ram, a father of four children, said.
"There is a signature below the picture of Obama but that is not my signature," he said.
Date of birth of the candidate mentioned in the admit card is 05-10-1987 while his date of birth is 01-01-1973.
He is an Arts graduate who has done his BEd and is now running the school in Rambas village in Dausa.
When contacted, Dausa District Collector Muktanand Agrawal said that he was not aware of any such matter.
"I have no such matter in my knowledge," Agrawal, who took over as Collector today, said.
