New Delhi (ILNS): The Allahabad High Court has refused to interfere with the recruitment examination of principals of degree colleges scheduled for today and has sought a response from the state government and the Higher Education Service Selection Commission in three weeks on the petition.
The order was passed by Justice Yashwant Verma on the petition of Dr Anupam Soni, an applicant to post.
The petition was opposed by BN Singh, the advocate for the Commission. He said that the petitioner was given a chance to fill the application, but he did not apply. The petitioner says that on March 2, 2019 the Higher Education Service Selection Commission issued an advertisement to fill the post of Principal. He had mistakenly applied in advertisement number 48. The clarification was published on April 18, 2019 which clarified the terms of the application and stated that the candidates of advertisement number 48 will have to apply afresh in advertisement number 49.
The new advertisement was issued after ending advertisement number 48. The petitioner could not submit the application due to unavoidable reasons. The court said that since he applied in advertisement number 48 let him sit for the examination on October 29.
The court said that the petitioner was not taking the ground that he was not aware of the clarification issued by the Commission. He did not submit a new application that now it has to apply in place of advertisement number 48 instead of 49. In this case, interim relief cannot be granted. The Court has summoned the reply from the State Government and the Commission.
The Petition will be heard after four weeks.
