Dinesh Babu & Another v. State Of U.P. & Others - SPECIAL APPEAL No. 761 of 2001  RD-AH 13475 (17 August 2006)
Special Appeal No. 761 of 2004
Dinesh Babu and another .....Appellants
State of U.P. and others .....Respondents
Hon'ble S. Rafat Alam, J.
Hon'ble Sudhir Agarwal, J.
Heard learned counsel for the appellant and the learned Standing Counsel for the State-respondents and also perused the judgment of the Hon'ble Single Judge dated 22.5.2001 in Civil Misc. Writ Petition No. 39247 of 1999.
Admittedly, the petitioners-appellants have not got training under Rule 9 of the U.P. Consolidation Lekhpals Service Rules, 1978 and thus, they were not eligible to be given appointment to the post of Lekhpal in the Consolidation Department. The contention that they have been given training by the Assistant Consolidation Officer is also of no help to the petitioners-appellants, since the Assistant Consolidation Officer has not been empowered or authorised to impart such training. The training is to be received at the training Centre established by the State Government under the Rules. Thus, the learned Single Judge has rightly held that the training imparted to the appellants by the Assistant Consolidation Officer is unauthorised and is no training within the meaning of the relevant Rules.
It is well settled law that a person having no requisite qualification, cannot insist or claim appointment to the post, which is to be filled by a person, having qualification prescribed under the Rules. For the post of Lekhpal a person is required to have received training under Rule 9 of the said Rules. Besides that for such training a selection is conducted by the State Government and only the persons, who qualify, on merit are sent for training. Neither the appellants were selected nor they have completed the training at an authorised centre and thus they have no right to claim appointment to the post of Lekhpal.
We, therefore, find no reason to interfere with the judgment under appeal. The appeal, being without any merit, is accordingly dismissed.
