High Court reserves order on KPSC gazetted probationers

The high court has reserved its order on a petition seeking that the stay on the appointment of 362 candidates for the posts of Group ‘A’ and ‘B’ gazetted probationers for the 2011 batch of KPSC be vacated.

The government and the selected candidates had filed an interlocutory application, seeking directions to vacate the stay and to allow the government to make the appointments.

After hearing the arguments from the counsel representing the selected candidates, those not selected, the government and KPSC, a division bench comprising Chief Justice S K Mukherjee and Justice P S Dinesh Kumar reserved its order. 

The 2011 batch candidates, including those who have been selected, have challenged the Karnataka Administrative Tribunal (KAT) order, which directed the government to go ahead with the appointment of candidates to 362 posts.

The petitioners have contended that despite large-scale irregularities in the selection process of candidates, wherein KPSC members were involved, the tribunal ordered to go ahead with the appointments.

The petitioners have questioned the government’s stand in the matter, contending it was the government which conducted a CID investigation into the matter and found mass malpractices in the selection process.

The government had said tainted candidates were appointed, but now, it is blindly following the KAT order.
