The Chhattisgarh High Court has stayed the recruitment of reserved seats for the Scheduled Castes category in the appointment of Assistant Professor in Indira Gandhi Agricultural College, Raipur.
A single-judge bench of Justice Gautam Bhaduri held the preliminary hearing on the matter.
The petitioner, Durgesh Sagar, a resident of Raipur, has filed a petition against the advertisement which has been issued for the recruitment of 66 vacant posts of Assistant Professor in Indira Gandhi Agricultural College in Raipur.
During the hearing, the petitioner’s lawyer Anjinesh Anjay Shukla has accused the appointment process of not following the law. He alleged the bypassing experience and qualification as per reservation rules.
He stated that the petitioner also applied for recruitment. After completing all the process of submission of applications, the candidates were interviewed. After this, the college management released the selection list of selected applicants.
The petitioner has challenged the selection of non-applicant serial number three in the Scheduled Castes category.
The petitioner submitted that the college has given more marks in the score card to the non-applicant number three, bypassing his educational qualification and educational experience. The petitioner, being from the same reserved category, alleged that the candidates with less experience have been selected without following the legal process.
