Allahabad High Court seeks response in petition against selection process in State Hospitals Staff Nurse Recruitment case

The Allahabad High Court has sought response from the Service Commission and the State Government on the petition against not considering the selection of those who get more marks than the successful candidates in the State Hospitals Staff Nurse Recruitment case.

A Single Bench of Justice Manju Rani Chauhan passed this order while hearing a Petition filed by Priti Patel And Another.

Counsel for the petitioners submitted that the results of the examination in question were declared on 03.10.2021 and answer key of the said examination has been uploaded on the official website after the orders passed by the Court on 28.03.2022, however, no objections were invited. Since objections were not invited, therefore, certain candidates, who have obtained more marks than the awarded marks, after verifying from the answer key, have not been considered for the selection.

He further submitted that some students have secured more marks than the selected candidates out of total 85 marks but those candidates have not been declared successful as their marks for experience certificate have not been awarded to them.
