Exclusion of some from IAS under HC lens

Chandigarh:

Exclusion of the employees working in the board, corporation and other autonomous bodies, including universities, from elevation to IAS through nomination from nonstate civil services category in Haryana has come under the scanner of the Punjab and Haryana high court.


The matter has reached the court in the wake of Dr Anil Balhara, who is working as assistant professor in the department of laws, BPS Women University in Sonipat since 2007.

The petitioner has submitted that an advertisement to fill five posts of IAS were advertised by the Haryana Public Service Commission on June 20 for the select list of 2018. In this advertisement, the employees/candidates of all boards, corporations and other autonomous bodies were barred from applying for the same and have been excluded. The last date for submission of the application form online was June 28.

In this regard, the government of Haryana had issued a letter on June 23 asking the administrative secretaries of all the departments to appoint nodal officers and to complete the forms and send the same to the HPSC in a time bound manner.

That the petitioner being fully eligible for the consideration for recruitment of IAS under the advertisement, applied for the said posts and submitted the application form online to HPSC. However, he has been excluded from applying for the post because of the illegal and arbitrary decision of the government not to include the employees of university for this post.

The petitioner has submitted that the object of such selection directly on IAS post from the state employees was to choose the best candidate for the post of IAS through non-state civil service from all organisation instrumentalities of the state by giving the chance to everyone. Petitioner added that surprisingly the assistant professors or teachers working in the state run government colleges are eligible to apply for this post, while the state-run university teachers having same qualification and same pay scale are excluded.

“The chances to get the best candidate are more when the eligibility domain of candidates is wider. Exclusion of the university professors/teachers of state universities and allowing government college teachers is unfounded and biased consideration. As both are governed by the UGC and their files are routed through the director higher education department of the state,” the petitioner has submitted.

The petitioner has sought directions to set-aside the order dated June 9 through which the university employees were excluded from selection on IAS post and also to set-aside the advertisement issued by the HPSC on June 20.

The matter would now come up for hearing before the HC on July 6.
