PHHC Stays Fresh selection process for adjustment of PTI Posts in Haryana
HC HALTS SACKED HRY PTIs ‘ADJUSTMENT’ ON NEW POSTS
Introduction : In this post we will discuss about the decision of the Punjab and Haryana High court in which it had stayed the fresh selection process initiated by the state on January 25 to adjust some physical training instructors on post of sports and school special assistant.
Facts of the case : The education department of the state of Haryana had recently initiated the process of recruitment, which allegedly aimed to adjust the PTIs whose appointments were quashed by the court through a tailor-made selection criteria.
The recruitment of 1983 PTIs through HSSC in 2010 was set aside by the HC and the orders were also upheld by the SC asking the state to hold fresh selection. The state, aiming to adjust the PTIs on new posts, issued an advertisement on January 25,which has come under judicial scanner
Thus the petition has been filed by the jangir Singh and others for quashing the public notice dated January 25. .The counsel for the petitioners contended that the selection criteria to the aforesaid post regarding the experience in physical training is totally arbitrary and discriminatory as 6 marks for every year have been given for a PTI who has worked in the state education department and only 1 mark for every year to a candidate who worked in a private organisation. It was submitted that the sacked PTIs had served for a period of 10 years before their selection was set aside.
They had also referred to the minimum age limit of 18 years and maximum age limit of 57 prescribed by the authorities for these posts, when the upper limit in Haryana is 42 years.
Legal issues : whether the recruitment on the basis of Jan 25 advertisement is valid or should it be set aside ?
Decision of Punjab and Haryana High court: while issuing notice to the Haryana government seeking reply on the issue by March 18 the high court ordered that no recruitment shall be initiated on the basis of advertisement till further orders. Does the Haryana government move to adjust some sacked physical training instructor on the post of sports and school special assistant has hit a hurdle after the Punjab and Haryana high court stayed the fresh selection process initiated by the state on January 25.
Conclusion : so the Punjab and Haryana High court by it’s order had stayed the the Haryana government move to adjust some physical training instructor John post of sports and school special assistant.
