Court No. 39
Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 38892 of 2006
Tej Kumar Pandey
State of U.P. and others
Hon'ble V.K. Shukla, J.
Petitioner has approached this Court, questioning the validity of order dated 20.05.2006, passed by District Inspector of Schools, Gorakhpur, by means of which papers, which had been transmitted for according approval to the post of clerk, has been rejected, on the ground that neither prior permission had been obtained nor had the provisions of reservation been complied with.
Division Bench of this Court in the case of Jagdish Singh etc. v. State of U.P. and others, (2006) UPLBEC 2765, has taken the view that no appointment against class III or Class IV post in a duly recognized Higher Secondary School or Intermediate College can be made without taking prior permission from the District Inspector of Schools, as provided in Regulations 101 to 107 of the Regulations framed under U.P. Intermediate Education Act, 1921. The claim of petitioner has to be considered strictly within the parameter as set out by Division Bench of this Court, and the District Inspector of School will have to examine as to whether in the entire district of Gorakhpur incumbents are working against supernumerary posts; whether incumbents from Dying in Harness quota are in queue; whether the post in question is meant for reserved category candidates and whether the post was to be filled up by way of promotion from amongst class IV eligible employee of the institution. Only in the event all these questions are answered in negative, then the claim of petitioner can be considered.
In the present case the view, which has been taken by the District Inspector of Schools in his decision dated 20.05.2006 is in the teeth of the directives contained in the aforementioned Division Bench judgment in the case of Jagdish Singh (2006) UPLBEC 2765, wherein it has been categorically held that prior approval has to be taken after selection proceeding is over, as such matter requires reconsideration.
It has also been contended that provisions of reservation have not been followed. In paragraphs 5 to 10 of the writ petition details of the vacancies and qua the incumbents, who were occupying the post has been given. Said statement of fact has not at all been disputed in the counter affidavit, as such the view, which has been mentioned for complying with the provisions of reservation, is totally vague and evasive. This facet of the order also requires consideration.
Consequently, writ petition succeeds and is allowed. The impugned order dated 20.05.2006 is hereby quashed and set aside. The District Inspector of Schools is directed to reconsider the matter as per observations made above.
