The government is working to streamline its application process for new jobs by streamlining the process for formal cover letters.
According to a draft of the proposed reforms, all applicants would have to submit formal cover-letters before they are allowed to receive jobs, the Times of India reported.
The government has also asked job seekers to sign a statement of intent before submitting formal cover applications.
It also wants to change the law to make it mandatory for employers to check the identities of applicants before they can hire them.
A senior official told the Times that the government has not yet made a final decision on the amendments.
The draft of amendments also asks that formal cover documents include an identification number, such as a birth certificate or a social security number, so that the employer can check the identity of the applicant before hiring them.
The HR department will work with the state government and the government of the state to draft and implement the amendments, the official said.
The changes will come into effect from January 1, 2020.
