Kumari Sharma Vs. State of Himachal Pradesh & Anr  INSC 1303 (23 October 1996)
O R D
have heard learned counsel on both sides.
appeals by special leave arise from the order of the Central Administrative
Tribunal, Shimla Bench made in O.A. No.619/95 and the review order, The
admitted position is that the Director of Eduction issued a notice for Junior
Basic Teachers' Training. The criteria for selection was 100 marks based on the
percentage of marks based on the percentage of marks obtained in matric or
equivalent examinations, 20 marks for candidates belonging rural areas and 10
marks for candidates belonging to backward panchayat were allotted. Similarly,
10 marks were allotted for candidates belonging to IRDP families. Though the
appellant claimed to belong to IRDP family, the authorities have not considered
her claim and consequently did not award 10 marks as required under the
criteria. When the appellant filed the writ petition, the High Court dismissed
the same holding that the appellant had not produced the certificate along with
the application and, therefore, she is not entitled to the above status. When
we directed the appellant to produce the record, she made the certificate a
part of the record.
it does not bear the date of issue; but we find that she has been given serial
number of the IRDP family. In view of the fact that serial are ascribed to all
the candidates in the order, we are of the view that her failure to furnish the
certificate along with the application does not disentitle her to claim the
status for consideration of 10 marks. Pursuant to the interim direction granted
by this Court, the appellant has already appeared for the examinations
conducted but her result has hot been announced.
the appeals are allowed; the order of the Tribunal stands set aside. There
shall be a direction to declare the result and her case for appointment will be
considered in accordance with the rules, if she is selected.
