Delhi pays salaries of almost 23,000 ghost workers

The government of the Indian capital, Delhi, has been paying salaries to 22,853 civic workers who do not exist.

Salaries for the missing Municipal Corporation of Delhi workers add up to nearly $43m a year, City Mayor Kanwar Sain said in a statement.

The “gap” was discovered after the authorities introduced a biometric system of recording attendance.

Correspondents say it shows some civic officials created a list of “ghost workers” to siphon off state funds…

It was long suspected that the city was being defrauded by “ghost workers“, but the authorities had always denied the charge.

Har! Anyone over there learn how to manage the graveyard vote, as well?
