Oral Judgment (Per:H.L.Gokhale,CJ)

1. Heard Mr. Suresh Singh, learned Standing Counsel in support of this appeal.

2. The appeal seeks to challenge the order passed by the learned Single Judge whereby his Lordship has allowed the petition filed by the respondent herein.

3. The case of the respondent was limited one. He had applied for the post of Seenchpal (clerk incharge of collection of irrigation charges). All that the petitioner prayed was that the result of the selection be declared. The respondents have relied upon a document which is in the nature of a letter from the Chief Engineer dated 3.5.2005. It is contended that this letter records a ban on filling anymore posts.

4. We have gone through the aforesaid letter and in our view, the letter speaks about the ban with respect to the General Category and Other Backward Class. The letter does not dispute, in fact, the factual position of there being a backlog of Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes. The petitioner belongs to a scheduled caste candidate. All that he has prayed is that the result of the selection be declared. According to the learned Single Judge, there was no such ban. In our view, he was right in his view. The appeal is dismissed.

Date:11.9.2007
