JUDGMENT

These writ petitions raise an identical question and therefore disposed of by this common judgment. The petitioners are candidates before the respondent-Public Service Commission seeking for appointment to the post of District Probation Officer in the Social Welfare Department. The notification issued by the Commission as well as the relevant rules requires the candidates to possess certain essential qualifications. A bachelors degree in Social Work or Social Services is one of the qualifications. Some of the petitioners possess a Post Graduate Degree in Sociology. But none of them possesses a degree in Social Work or Social Services. The respondent-Commission has taken up the stand that the petitioners are not qualified, and therefore, they cannot be permitted to participate in the further selection process including interview.

2. Counsel for the Commission has brought to my notice the judgment of the Division Bench of this Court in Mukesh v. State of Kerala {2006(4) KLT 1023}. It appears that the ratio of the above decision squarely applies to the point raised for consideration in these writ petitions. WPC 2452/07 etc. 2 Precisely the issue discussed in the above judgment is the same and the ultimate finding is against the petitioners. The Division Bench has held that unless the candidates possess a degree in Social Work or Social Services, they have no right to participate in the selection process. It follows that these writ petitions are liable to be dismissed. I do so. K.K.DENESAN Judge jj
