Upendra Kumar Singh v. Staff Selecton Commissioner Thru' Its Chairman & Others - WRIT - A No. 2219 of 2003  RD-AH 5908 (2 April 2007)
Hon.Shishir Kumar, J.
We have heard Sri B.P.Singh, learned counsel for the petitioner.
The petitioner has applied for the post of Hindi Translator. His application was rejected by the respondents on the ground that he did not possess the required minimum educational qualification. The petitioner had challenged the order dated 13.6.2002 by means of Original Application No.1196 of 2002. The Tribunal found that the petitioner has passed graduate examination known as B.A. Honours but Hindi was not his main subject or subsidiary subject. However, the petitioner has passed compulsory Hindi which was modern Indian language. The Tribunal has given cogent reason in paragraphs 6 and 7 of its order that compulsory Hindi cannot be treated as main or subsidiary subject. Further question of opportunity of hearing in our opinion was not relevant while rejecting the claim of the petitioner.
We do not find any illegality in the impugned order of the Tribunal dated 22.10.2002. The writ petition fails and is accordingly dismissed.
No order as to costs.
