He further submitted that the petitioner, who applied for the post of A.R.O, did not possess “O” Level certificate awarded by the DOEACC society or a qualification equivalent thereto, therefore, his candidature has been rejected when the document were being verified. Thus, the relief as prayed cannot be granted.

From perusal of advertisement as well as the document as annexed to the petition, it is clear that the petitioner possesses the DCA Certificate, which is not equivalent “O” Level certificate awarded by the DOEACC society or a qualification equivalent thereto, therefore, he is not eligible or qualified for the post of Assistant Review Officer as per the prescribed qualification mentioned in the advertisement, the Court observed.

The Court said that, it is the Commission/competent authority, who has right to consider the case of the petitioner and it is not the function of the Court to adjudge or evaluate the suitability or desirability of a particular qualification that may be prescribed. Here too the Courts must exercise due restraint and desist from treading down this path since these issues must be left to the fair judgment and assessment of the employer and the experts in the field.
