Budh Pal Singh And Another v. State Of U.P. & Others - WRIT - A No. 37621 of 2005  RD-AH 6615 (27 March 2006)
Civil Misc. Writ No. 37621 of 2002
Hari Kishan Dangwal Petitioner
Union of India and others Respondents.
Hon'ble Rakesh Tiwari, J
Heard counsel for the parties and perused the record.
The petitioner moved an application for appointment on compassionate ground with supportive document that his father died in harness on 16.11.99. He was appointed in C.R.P.F. subject to passing medical examination.
It appears from Annexure-CA-6 letter dated 11th January, 2002 issued by the Directorate, Central CRPF, CCO Complex, Lodhi Road, New Delhi under Ministry of Home Affairs that colour blindness shall be a disqualification for the appointment in Combatised Ministerial Ranks.
From the record it appears that on medical examination the petitioner was found unfit as he was suffering from colour blindness, hence he cannot be appointed in CRPF.
The counsel for the petitioner states that the petitioner is the only a person in the family who can be given appointment under the Dying in Harness Rules. Since the petitioner was found medically disqualified for appointment under the CRPF and appointment under the Dying in Harness Rules is not a legal right. In the circumstances, neither the petitioner having been found medically fit at the very initial stage of induction nor any one from his family can be given appointment.
For the reasons stated above, the writ petition is dismissed. No order as to costs.
