HC dismisses bunch of petitions challenging selection in Finance Deptt


JAMMU, JAN 8: Justice Rajesh Bindal of J&K High Court Jammu Wing dismisses bunch of petitions challenging selection of Inspectors in Finance Dept. While dismissing the petitions, Justice Rajesh Bindal observed that this Court would like to observe that we are living in the era of technology. The recruitment agencies, which are entrusted the job of recruitment, should also use the same, while carrying out recruitment process. The print media is not the only a mode to communicate with the candidate. Each of the candidates have mobile phones and most of them have computers. The applications are also required to be submitted on line.
If the information regarding e-mail Id and mobile phone numbers is taken by the recruitment agencies at the time of filling of forms, besides public notices, the candidates can also be apprised about any development through e-mail and messages on mobiles. This will not give any chance to a candidate to raise plea that he never came to know about any notice published by the recruitment agency in the newspapers or that the newspaper has no circulation in the area, where they are residing. Entire information should be uploaded on the website of the recruitment agencies and the candidates should be adviced to visit the website regularly to note any instructions issued pertaining to any selection process. The notices should be compartmentized advertisement wise. This will be a step in the direction to bring more transparency and fairness in the process of selection.
High Court directed Registry to send a copy of the order to sent to the Chief Secretary to the Government of Jammu and Kashmir for necessary action. While dismissing petition, Justice Rajesh Bindal observed that 22. The writ petitions filed merely seeking relief of reservation of some of the posts in the process of selection initiated pursuant to the advertisement notice issued in the year 2015, to safeguard the interest of the petitioners, who were the candidates for advertisement notice issued in the year 2013, are totally misconceived. Admittedly, the petitioners were not the candidates in the selection process initiated in the year 2015. The writ petitions were filed merely seeking reservation of the posts to secure their interest in case they succeed in the writ petitions filed earlier pertaining to the selection process initiated in the year, 2013, the same deserve to be dismissed.
