Recruitment is recruiting candidates for a process and selecting is selection of candidates from those recruited. Interrelated words.

It is observed that an MNC is collecting all sorts of information on the Date of Interview. And once the Interview is cracked, the HR immediately asks the documents from the successful candidates. The HR has no intention of selecting all the successful candidates, but will shortlist among those candidates, after the HR Rounds. (Or may not select anyone, based on the urgency of the requirement)

My query being - even BEFORE issuing the Offer Letter, is the company 'legally authorized' to collect copies of the documents like: PAN Card, Passport, ITRR, Salary BreakUp/Slips, Previous Company's Appointment/Appraisal Letter, Education Certificates, Form-16, Organization ID and more importantly the 'Information Release Form' that authorizes the company to conduct verification on me, without me yet being a part of the company. There are many other less intimidating personal informations like Marital Status, phone numbers of Families/References, Address etc

I would like to emphasize again that the info is collected WITHOUT an Offer, and purely on a 'candidacy' basis just after the Interview process.

I believe it is not ethical to database the personal information of people who are not a part of the company. However, I am interested in the legality of it.

QUOTE=Vyakhya;62992]Hi Charles,
Recruitment and Selection are two intereraletd function but yet different
Recruitment comes first and is followed by Selection.
Recruitment is positive process while Selection is a negative process.
Recruitment is calling large pool of candidates while Selection is choosing the suitable candidate.
These are the major difference that I know

Hi samita ji i m totally agree with u r question, i personally feel recruiters knows that is demand is more than supply. That is why they do like this,but there is not any law to stop this.
Recruitment = Getting to know (gathering) the Pool of what is available. Selection- To choose the Best from the available.
