Uttar Pradesh’s government is overwhelmed after receiving over two million applications for 368 low-level government jobs. Even though the prerequisites for the posts include having primary school qualifications and being able to ride a bicycle, 255 PhD holders and 152,000 graduates have applied. The successful candidates will receive a monthly salary of 16,000 rupees ($240).Official:
