Jitendra Yadav v. Union Of India And Others - WRIT - A No. 33015 of 2004  RD-AH 586 (19 August 2004)
Hon'ble Rakesh Tiwari, J.
Heard Ms Archana Singh, counsel for the petitioner and Sri S. C. Mishra, Addl. Standing Counsel for the Union Government and perused the record.
The relief claimed by the petitioner in this writ petition is for a direction to respondent no. 3 to consider his application for re-medical examination.
The case of the petitioner, in brief, is that in pursuance of an advertisement for recruitment of constables in Central Reserve Police Force (C.R.P.F.) the petitioner applied for appointment as a constable. He had qualified the Interview and written examination. However, in the medical examinaton the Medical Superintendent of C.R.P.F. declared him unfit on the ground that he was suffering from knock-knee. The petitioner approached the Chief Medical Officer, Varanasi who gave his report that the petitioner was not suffering from knock-knee. The petitoner informed the respondents about the report of the Chief Medical Officer, Varanasi declaring him not suffering from the disease of knock-knee and prayed for re-medical examination by a separate medical board or medical officer, but no heed was paid to his request by the respondents and hence this writ petition.
The counsel contends that the petitioner got him medically examined by the Chief Medical Officer, Varanasi who has reported that the petitioner did not suffer from the disease of knock-knee. She has placed reliance upon the circular issued by the Director General of C.R.P.F. dated 13.9.2002 which provides for giving another chance to the candidate who has been declared medically unfit to appear before the medical board for re-medical examination after depositing Rs. 25/- in I.P.O.
In view of the facts stated above, the writ petition is disposed of with direction that respondent no. 3 shall pass order for re-medical examination of the petitioner by the medical board within a period of three weeks from the date of submission of a certified copy of this order along with I.P.O. of Rs. 25/- before him by the petitioner. After the petitioner is re-examined by the medical board, respondent no. 3 shall pass necessary orders within a week. No order as to costs.
