Rajesh Kumar Srivastava Vs. Shri Bhola Nath Tiwari & others
Hon. Sunil Ambwani, J.
Heard Shri P.S. Baghel, learned counsel for U.P. Public Service Commission. The U.P. Public Service Commission is in the process of selections of 1239 posts of Medical Officers (Allopathic) (Male); 282 posts of Allopathic Medical Officers, Specialised (Male) and 369 posts of Allopathic Medical Officers, Specialised (Female) as detailed by him. The interviews for the post of Allopathic Medical Officer, Specialised (Female) (Radiologist) was held on 9.2.2006 and the interviews for Allopathic Medical Officers, Specialised (Female) (Anesthetists) is scheduled on 21 and 22, February, 2006. The other dates of interviews for specialized and non-specialised cadre are still to be fixed.
Shri P.S. Baghel states that the Commission, has considered the request of the Court favourably and has offered to increase the number of interview boards from 3 to 4 and number of candidates for each interview boards from 15 to 18. This will facilitate interviews of 72 candidates on each day with a target of about 94 working days for completing the interviews.
Shri Baghel further states that it is possible that recommendation for specialized cadres may be sent as soon as the interviews are over, without waiting for conclusion of interviews of Medical Officers (male) (Allopathic).
The Court appreciates the stand taken by the U.P. Public Service Commission and expects that as assured the interviews be completed in 3 ½ months and recommendation be immediately made, thereafter, and that if it is possible, without disturbing inter se rights or violating the rules, to send the recommendation for the specialized cadres for which the interviews have already started, before concluding the entire process.
It is to be observed that these orders are being passed as more than 2000 posts in PMS are vacant, which constitutes about 20% of the entire sanctioned posts, causing serious public health crisis. U.P. Public Service Commission will do well, to carry out its assurance given to the Court.
Let this order be given to Shri P.S. Baghel free of cost for compliance by tomorrow.
