Pharma company Indoco Remedies in controversy over its recruitment drive


Panaji: Indoco Remedies Plant in Goa advertising for their vacancies outside Goa has sparked a row in the state with Goa Forward Party and Revolutionary Goans party demanding intervention of CM Dr Pramod Sawant in the matter.

On Wednesday morning, Sardesai wrote on X handle “SHUNNING #GOEMKARS FOR JOBS IN #GOA IS OUTRAGEOUS. I WILL CHALLENGE. INDOCO MUST RETHINK. Walk-in interviews to be held in Boisar, #Maharashtra, for a Indoco Remedies plant in #Goa is a deliberate attempt to avoid hiring #Goans, and an affront to Goa. This absurdity is allowed to happen when Goa’s unemployment rate is higher than the national average. I had warned @GovtofGoa of pharma companies engaging in such deviousness, both in the Assembly and outside, and was assured of strict action. I want the @goacm to immediately intervene, and stand up for Goemkars running from pillar to post in search of jobs. If #Goans do not benefit from industries in #Goa, why have them here in the first place?”

RGP chief Manoj Parab wrote “Company in Goa and interview in Maharashtra. This attitude of Pharma companies in Goa has crossed all the limits. The BJP government has sold our jobs to Migrants. We do not have a strong Job reservation policy for locals. It’s all about donations and electoral bonds for BJP.”
