Hon. Tarun Agarwala, J.
Heard counsel for the parties.
The petitioners have prayed for the quashing of the impugned order dated 24.7.2001, passed by the District Judge, Deoria, cancelling the waiting list of Class-IV employees. 21 vacancies were notified in the news papers on 3.2.2000 for filling the vacancies on the post of peons, process servers etc. It transpires that 21 vacancies were subsequently filled from the select list of 40 persons. It further transpires that three vacancies arose subsequently and the waiting list was utilized and the said posts were filled. Subsequently by the impugned order, the waiting list has been cancelled.
In Ram Babu and another vs. District Judge, Banda, 1996 A.W.C. 516, it has been held that the moment the notified vacancies are filled up, the waiting list prepared under Rule 12 of U.P. Subordinate Civil Courts Inferior Establishment Rules,1955 comes to an end and no further appointment can be made from the said waiting lit. The decision of this Court in Ram Babu's case squarely covers the present facts and circumstances of the case.
Learned counsel for the petitioner has placed a that the decision in the case of Shilesh Chandra Saxena vs. State of U.P. and others, 1989 ALR 13, in which it has been held that if a particular period is not prescribed for a life of the waiting list, it should be extended upto three years. This decision, in my view, is not applicable to the present facts and circumstances of the case. In the aforesaid case, the Rules of U.P. Palika (Centralized) Service Rules, 1966 was under consideration whereas in the present case a direction has been given in the judgment of Ram Babu case while interpreting Rule 12 of U.P. Subordinate Civil Courts Inferior Establishment Rules, 1955.
In view of the aforesaid, the judgment cited by the learned counsel for the petitioners is not applicable.
Consequently, there is no error in the impugned order. The writ petition fails and is dismissed.
