CIVIL MISC. WRIT PETITION NO. 31465 OF 2003
Krishna Kumar ......... Petitioner
The Union Public Service Commission,
Allahabad & anr .......... Respondents
Hon. Dr. B.S. Chauhan, J.
Hon. D.P. Gupta, J.
This writ petition has been filed challenging the order dated 10/4/2003 (ANNEX-10) by which the candidature of the petitioner has been rejected by the U.P. Public Service Commission, Allahabad on the ground that there was no proof and proper verification by the Educational Authorities that the petitioner's salary was more than Rs1400/-p.m.
Facts and circumstances giving rise to this case are that the U.P. Public Service Commission advertised the vacancies for the post of Principal of Intermediate College, and petitioner had also applied. However, he was not selected. A large number of writ petitions were filed before this Court, and ultimately, the matter went up to the Hon'ble Apex Court. When the orders passed by the Hon'ble Supreme Court were not complied with, Contempt Applications were filed and some Review Petitions were also filed. The Hon'ble Supreme Court disposed of all those cases issuing certain directions for reconsideration of the candidature of some of the candidates. In pursuance thereof, the petitioner's case was also reconsidered. It has been rejected on the ground that as per the requirement petitioner had to get the fact verified that he was getting salary more than Rs 1400/- p.m. from the Educational Authorities i.e. the D.I.O.S and Deputy Director of Education which could not be done in this case. Hence his candidature has been rejected.
In fact, the petitioner had been working in a non-aided School. In the application, verification is there by the educational authority, but, with a remark that petitioner was working in a non-aided School. Thus, what it meant was that the authority was not in a position to verify regarding his pay- scale. This cannot be held to be a proper verification. Thus we, do not find any fault with the impugned order.
Petition is, accordingly, dismissed.
