Renu Verma v. State Of U.P. And Others - WRIT - C No. 28338 of 2006  RD-AH 10117 (23 May 2006)
Hon. Dr. B.S. Chauhan, J.
Hon. Dilip Gupta, J.
That pursuant to an advertisement published by the U.P. Public Service Commission, Allahabad (hereinafter referred to as the ''Commission') the petitioner submitted an application for appearing at the Combined State/Upper Subordinate Services (Special Selection), 2004 for OBC candidates. The petitioner appeared at the preliminary examination and was declared successful. She then submitted the application form for appearing at the main examinations. However, the admit card was not issued to the petitioner for appearing therein. This petition has accordingly been filed for a direction upon the respondents to issue an admit card to the petitioner for appearing in the said examinations.
When the matter was taken up by us on 18th May, 2006 we directed the counsel for the Commission to seek instructions and also provisionally permitted the petitioner to appear at the examinations scheduled to be held on 19th May, 2006.
Sri M.A. Qadeer, learned counsel for the Commission has produced the original application form filed by the petitioner. The petitioner claims to be belonging to the OBC category. She also married with a person who belongs to the OBC category. Sri Qadeer has pointed out that the petitioner did not file any certificate to show that her father belongs to the OBC category. This was essential to determine as to whether the petitioner belongs to OBC category by birth.
In view of the fact that the petitioner had already been permitted to appear provisionally in the main examinations by the order of the Court and in view of the fair statement made by Sri M.A. Qadeer, learned counsel for the Commission that the petitioner may now file the said caste certificate of her father within a period of four weeks from today, we dispose of this Writ Petition with a direction that in case petitioner files the caste certificate of her father indicating that he belongs to the OBC category within a period of four weeks from today, the Commission shall not reject her candidature and would treat her eligible for the main examinations and her result shall also be declared accordingly.
