W.P.(C) NO. 19245 OF 2005
Dated this the 3rd day of August, 2007
J U D G M E N T
The petitioner, who had applied for the Administrative Officer Gr.II in response to Ext.P1 notification is challenging Ext.P15 communication issued by the PSC rejecting his application for the reason that he did not have the required experience and that the experience he had, did not make him eligible to be considered for the post in question. The petitioner was holding the post of PA to the District Development Officer, Scheduled Castes and the same has been re-designated by Ext.P14 order as Assistant District Development Officer, Scheduled Castes. Although the petitioner has raised several grounds and produced several documents in support of his claim, in the counter affidavit filed on behalf of the first respondent, it is stated that Government have clarified in their letter dated 22/5/90 that the post of PA to District Development Officer in the Scheduled Caste Department do not come under the purview of the orders issued in terms of G.O.M.S. 140/76/PD dated 15/5/76 WPC 19245/05 which defined "supervisory experience" and "supervisory post", and the same has been produced as Ext.R1(a). Since the post held by the petitioner is included in the statement appended to Ext.R1(a), the petitioner has to be held as not having the experience prescribed in Ext.P1 notification and therefore he is ineligible. Even after production of Ext.R1(a), the petitioner has not challenged the same and hence going by the terms of Ext.R1 (a), admittedly, petitioner is ineligible and for that reason first respondent was justified in rejecting his application. This writ petition deserves to be dismissed and I do so, but without prejudice to the right of the petitioner to challenge Ext.R1(a), if he is so advised. Writ petition is disposed of as above.
