Early Times Report
Srinagar, Jan 21: The Supreme Court today allowed J&K Public Service Commission to carry further selection process in KAS examination 2016. The High Court had last month barred the J&KPSC from carrying the selection process.
"In the interim, we direct that selection process can be completed and no appointment will be made," said a bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Sanjiv Khanna after hearing the counsel for the J&KPSC and perusing the relevant material. However, the court made it clear that the High Court would be free to decide the suo motu Public Interest Litigation on merits on the date fixed. The Combined Competitive (Mains) examination was held from July 2 to August 8 this year. 6427 candidates had appeared in the examination and 963 candidates qualified for personality test/ viva-voice.
On December 21, the high court had stayed further selection process while hearing a suo-moto petition.
The division bench of the high court has asked the J&KSPC to file detailed counter affidavit "meeting objections pointed out by the aggrieved candidates and show cause as to why this petition be not admitted."
The directions by the division bench followed submissions by a number of aggrieved candidates, who were present in person and raised issues with regard to KAS examination notification of 2016.
They complained of data corruption and huge human error beside digital marking in the examination.
In addition, they submitted that J&KPSC has resorted to arbitrary scaling and moderation which was not mentioned in the notification when the posts were advertised.
The aggrieved candidates also placed before court a representation dated 17 December with signatures of 83 applicants.
The court has also appointed senior advocate Z.A.Shah as Amicus Curie who will be assisted by Ms. Mokshah Kazmi.
"The Amicus shall examine the matter and place appropriate written submissions before the next date," the court said posted the petition for further consideration on January 28.
