The Allahabad High Court has asked the Uttar Pradesh government to file a response on the petitions filed challenging the selection to the posts of Staff Nurse/Sister Grade-II conducted by the Public Service Commission, Uttar Pradesh.

A single-judge bench of Justice Rajiv Joshi passed this order while hearing a petition filed by Priti Patel and Another.

The Standing Counsel for the state as well as the Counsel for the Commission, on the basis of instructions, submitted that the State Government constituted a three-member committee on 28.04.2022 and the scrutinization of experience certificates of 15,000 candidates is under consideration. They further submitted that the committee should file its report within at least 45 days.

“In the meantime, the Standing Counsel representing the State and the Counsel for the Commission may file a counter affidavit disclosing therein the manner in which the respondents are evaluating the experience certificate of the candidates.

It is made clear that the respondents are not expected to issue fresh advertisements with regard to 1,729 vacancies,” the order reads.

The Court listed the matter again after the report of the Committee in the third week of July 2022 as fresh along with connected writ petitions.

Earlier, the Allahabad High Court stayed the recruitment process for 1,729 vacant posts of Staff Nurse Recruitment Examination-2021 conducted by the Uttar Pradesh Public Service Commission.

The Court observed in perusal of the records as well as arguments placed by the counsel for the parties, certain discrepancies were found in scrutinizing the experience certificate of candidates.

Nishith Yadav, counsel for the respondent UPPSC, informed the Court that they have decided to re-scrutinize the experience certificate of 814 selected candidates, whose recommendations have not been sent till date to the State Government as well as other candidates, who had applied, for which committee is required. He further informed that request in this regard has already been sent by the Commission letter dated 21.04.2022, a copy of which has been passed on to the Court.
