For the Petitioner ..... Sri Raj Mohan Saggi
For the Respondents ..... Smt.Archana Singh and
Amitava Lala,J:-According to the learned counsel appearing for the petitioner, the petitioner has passed M.Phil. degree in Physical Education and is eligible for the purpose of minimum qualification required to fill up the post, as on the date of interview. However, in the advertisement dated 28th February, 2006 the minimum qualification in respect of M.Phil. was restricted only upto 31st December, 1993. Therefore, two questions arose about her right as well as the arbitrariness in making such advertisement by the U.P. Higher Education Service Commission. It appears to this Court that in respect of question of right of the petitioner, who has not been eligible as on the date of the advertisement, is fragile. So far as the question of arbitrariness is concerned, sound submission is there for the purpose of interference of this Court. We initially thought that the date of 31st December, 1993 is arbitrary cut off date but subsequently we find from the Government Order dated 6th January, 2003 that such cut off date was being made by them and directed the commission to follow. Therefore, there is no question of any arbitrariness. However, the condition which was imposed initially to restrict the qualification of M.Phil. upto 31st December, 1993 is no more available. Therefore, in view of the subsequent Government Order dated 12th July, 2006 the effectivity will be prospective. It cannot operate restrospective in respect of an advertisement dated 28th February, 2006. The question arose whether any corrigendum can be issued about the advertisement dated 28th February, 2006 or not since the interview is not complete. But it is for the authority to do so. As on date we observe that if there any such condition is imposed due to further Government Order, the petitioner might get benefit prospectively but as per the present advertisement we cannot pass any favourable order.
With the above observation the writ petition is disposed of.
No order is passed as to costs.
