Beware of CEDA 2014 Recruitment Scam

Published on Friday, January 17, 2014
Today I got a mail from a close friend and moderator of forum Nilesh, read what Nilesh said
Hey, How r u...
Can you please have an insight on the below recruitment for CEDA. Have seen some comments on different websites, stating this is a fraud.
Website appears to be fine as normally fraudulent sites will not have clean information regarding the institutions they are faking.
However, the online application form appeared to be not in a proper/standard format.
As he is a reliable source of information so I started to research n this website and found strange facts.

Why I doubt their credibility

Whois registry of the official website

Official website of CEDA is just 2 months old. It was first registered on November 3, 2013. So, official website of a public organization which is working since 1984, started their website 2 months back. Check Whois records here.

Nowhere in Government of India directory

Government of India maintains a directory of all public sector departments here. I searched the whole website but there no such department. You can check the directory alphabetically, till now I am unable to find link of this website on any other authority. Just job portals and recruitment websites are linking to this website. As all of you know the job updates websites don't do any kind of research and post at least 20 updates in a day.

Contact information

All Government organizations mention their landline numbers in the contact us pages. As IBPS have a helpline number. There is just one contact form and no landline number mentioned. Further address mentioned is 
Paderu, Visakhapatnam, Andhra Pradesh- 531024
I tried to find this address on Google Maps but till now I am not successful.
CEDA contact address

No payment gateway

I have never seen any government organization not having payment gateway. As organizations need to adhere to many formalities to get payment gateway API. There was a clear doubt that this website is fake.
CEDA fraud

May be wrong on this, but if anybody have a reliable information about this then please comment below or mail me

As money of thousands of candidates is at stake so we should take every step to ensure the credibility of CEDA.


It is now confirmed that CEDA recruitments is a fraud. There is no such address. Owner of the website lives in Queensland, Australia. Don't waste yur money and avoid this at any cost. They didn't even get the payment gateway that's why they are asking fee submission via cash deposit.

Update 19-January-2014

Th person behind this scam is not Autralian. This fraud is an Indian,  Utkarsh Kulshrestha, A BITS Pilani alumni. Got his mobile number from Whois directory. Filed a complaint against him. Soon he will be behind bars.

I talked to Utkarsh on mobile, he said that he is a freelancer whereas a website of a public company registered on the name of a freelancer, unable to digest this fact.

Already sent mail to Tribune newspaper.
