Ministry of Shipping has taken note of the fake website link, with the url: http://sagarmala.org.in/, that is being sent through emails to job seekers and other genuine stakeholders of Sagarmala programme. This fake website that may appear to be similar or identical to the original website contains a false advertisement about recruitment of Engineer trainee and Diploma trainee.
The Ministry has cautioned against any such false and misleading advertisements. In a press statement it warned:
It may be noted, that such acts of fraud, misrepresentation, falsification and fabrication of information as seen here are clear violations under the Information Technology Act and the Indian Penal Code, for which swift and strict criminal actions are being initiated against all such fraudulent entities.
All the stakeholders of the this programme have been told that the official domain of Sagarmala website is http://www.sagarmala.gov.in/.
