After hearing the arguments, the bench said, ‘The petitioners should be considered in the final list as requested by the petitioners as interim relief and the education department has already issued the 2022 no. The provisional selection list published on 18 cannot be continued after the publication of the provisional selection list.
In connection with the application, the Under Secretary of the School Education and Literacy Department, the Secretary of the Personnel and Administrative Reforms Department issued a notice to all the respondents and adjourned the hearing to December 9.
In this way, as a result of the confusion caused in the submission of caste and income certificate of the candidates in relation to the recruitment of 15 thousand graduate primary school teachers in the state, the High Court has placed a stay order on the provisional selection list of 1:1 ratio.
Senior advocate Sasikiran Shetty, who argued for the petitioner, said, ‘Reservation and rotation rules have not been followed properly in the provisional selection list. It is illegal. This is unfair to many candidates. Therefore, he requested the court to injunction.
For the recruitment of primary school teachers no. The provisional selection list of 1:1 ratio published on 18th contains the names of the candidates who scored less than the applicant. When DDPIs were inquired about this, we got information that names of married women candidates were omitted from the list as they had submitted father’s income/caste certificate instead of husband’s income/caste certificate. In addition, the applicants objected that the candidates were included in the category of general candidates without giving any information and demanded that the 1:1 provisional selection list published on November 18 should be cancelled.
Background of the case:
The notification regarding recruitment of teachers was issued on March 21, 2022. A total of 1,16,223 people filed RG. Out of these 68,849 appeared for the above examination. Later 51,098 were eligible. 22,432 persons were considered in the ratio list of 1:2. Finally 13,363 candidates were shortlisted 1:1.
This time the process was completed faster than previous recruitment processes. In 2017, 1 year and 1 month, in 2019 it was completed in 9 months and 4 days. This time the process was completed in 8 months and 27 days.
The copy of the court restraining order has not arrived. After getting it, we will take legal advice and take further action. The top officials of the School Education and Literacy Department said that necessary action will be taken to vacate the restraining order as soon as possible.
