The Punjab and Haryana High court issue a notice to the Punjab government on the plea filed by some youth for failure of state authorities to deliver the promise made by chief minister Amarinder Singh in his tweet regarding increase in the age of recruitment of sub-inspectors in Punjab police.
The petition has been filed by Navdeep Brar, a resident of Bharu village in Gidderbaha tehsil Mukhtar district and 55 other youths from Punjab. They have sought directions from the state to relax age restrictions since were deprived of their right to apply since no recruitments have made over 5 years. According to the petitioners, the chief minister announced in tweet on July 12, 2020 that the age of candidates for the recruitment of sub-inspectors in Punjab police would increase from 28 to 32. However the age limit has not increased in the advertisement issued on July 6, 2021 for the recruitment of 560 sub-inspectors wherein the age limit has been kept 28.
Taking cognisance of the petition, Justice Girish Agnihotri issued notice to the Punjab home Secretary and DGP, seeking their response to the contentions raised by the petitioners. The matter is fixed for further hearing on August 16,2021.
