R.K. Poria Vs. State of
Haryana & ANR INSC 457 (13 March 2008)
A.K. Mathur & Lokeshwar
O R D E R Writ Petition
(C) No. 444 of 2002
1. Applications for
intervention/impleadment are dismissed.
2. We have heard learned counsel for the parties at great length.
3. The grievance of the petitioner was for appointment in Haryana Civil
Service (Executive Branch) against vacancy which arose in the year 1992 and
selection process whereof was completed in the year 1996 is highly belated.
4. The brief facts are that the Haryana Public Service Commission issued an
advertisement in November, 1992 inviting applications for 12 vacancies (9 for
General and 3 for Scheduled Caste) for Haryana Civil Service (Executive
Branch). The result of final selection was declared on 15th March, 1996. The petitioner did not come in merit for appointment on the post of Haryana Civil
Service (Executive Branch) but he was selected in the Haryana Civil Service
(Allied Services) and his name was recommended for post of 'A' Class Tehsildar.
5. The petitioner did not make any grievance against the selection process.
However, after the judgment of this Court in & Anr." decided on
November 09, 2000, the petitioner raised a grievance and started making
representations that he may be appointed on the 4th vacancy because as per the
roster point every fourth vacancy was earmarked for a candidate from the
Scheduled Caste category. Various representations of the petitioner did not
find favour with the authorities and hence the petitioner approached this Court
by way of present writ petition under Article 32 of the Constitution of India.
6. In our view, the grievance of the petitioner is highly belated and at
this distance of time, we do not think it proper to disturb the selection
process which was completed in the year 1996.
Accordingly, we dismiss this writ
petition. No order as to costs.
