JAMMU: Justice Sanjeev Kumar of J&K High Court Jammu Wing on Tuesday quashed the appointment of three Junior Engineers (Electrical) selected on contractual basis in District Doda.
The court verdict came in a petition filed by Iftikhar Hussain Shah challenging the appointment of 39 respondents (Nos. 5 to 43) as Junior Engineers (Electrical) on contractual basis in District Doda vide Order No 404-DCP of 2006 dated August 31, 2006, Order No. 424-DCP of 2006 dated September 18, 2006 and Order No.526-DCP of 2006 dated November 27, 2006.
After hearing Advocate Aditya Gupta for the petitioner, the court observed that the appointments of aforesaid respondents cannot be wholly sustained and subsequently quashed the selection and appointment of respondents Nos. 5, 6 and 7.
The court directed Deputy Commissioner Doda to re-evaluate the academic merit of all eligible candidates who had participated in the aforesaid selection process by taking into consideration the aggregate marks of all the years of degree/diploma, as the case may be. “The marks given by the Selection Committee in the viva-voce shall, however, remain the same”, the court said and added, “The merit of eligible candidates shall be re-worked and determined afresh and select list shall be re-drawn. Those of the appointed candidates, who will still make it to the select list, shall not be disturbed, whereas those who are slotted in merit list and on re-determination of the merit fall short of requisite merit shall be ousted. The new candidates, if any, coming in the selection zone, shall be offered the appointment retrospectively with effect from the date the private respondents were appointed with all consequential benefits minus the monetary benefits, the court observed.
