Writ Petition No. 29743 of 2004
Smt. Sushila Devi ... Petitioner
Union of India and others ... Respondents
HON'BLE YATINDRA SINGH, J.
HON'BLE RK RASTOGI, J.
1. An advertisement was published by the Indian Oil Corporation (the Corporation) on 17.1.2004 for allotment of retail outlet dealership. This was reserved for scheduled caste (woman) category. The petitioner as well as many others applied for the same. Interview was held on 13.7.2004. The result was also declared on the same date. The panel contained the name of respondent no. 7 only, hence the present writ petition.
2. We have heard counsel for the petitioner, Sri Prakash Padia for the Corporation and Sri Rohit Pandey for respondent no.7.
3. The counsel for the petitioner submitted that only one name was declared in the panel and as such it is illegal. The Corporation has filed counter affidavit in which it is mentioned that eligible person should have secured 60% marks and as only respondent no. 7 had secured 60 % marks, her name was declared. The counsel for the petitioner produced the guidelines to show that in the case of reserved category, the eligibility is at 50 % only of the total marks and not 60%. These guidelines are dated 11th November 2004 and the result was declared prior to that date. There is nothing on record to disbelieve the counter affidavit filed by the Corporation. There is no merit in this point.
4. The Corporation has also produced original marksheet before this court. It was shown to the counsel for the petitioner also. It indicates that out of total 195 marks (65 marks each by the three experts) the petitioner secured only 97 marks and respondent no. 7 secured 119 marks. The marks secured by respondent no. 7 are much higher than the petitioner. Nothing has been pointed out to show that there is any mistake in awarding the marks. There is no merit in the writ petition. It is dismissed.
