Claim for lack of time wherein a candidate contending for the post of a constable was required to run 5 km in 25 min was declared baseless by the Rajasthan HC

Rajasthan High Court: A Single Judge Bench comprising of Arun Bhansali, J. dismissed a plea against the grant of inadequate time to appear for the PET examination.

This writ petition was sought by the petitioner to direct the respondents to conduct fresh Physical Efficiency Test (PET) as he was not granted sufficient time to prepare for the same result of which he failed.

Referring to the facts, after passing the written examination for the post of Constable, the petitioner downloaded his admission card one day before the PET wherein he was to run for 5 km in 25 min and being well aware of such requirements he opted to fill the form, therefore the claim for lack of time was baseless as he had sufficient time and opportunity to participate in the said test.

Accordingly being devoid of merits, the writ petition was dismissed. [Tejpal Singh v. State of Rajasthan,2018 SCC OnLine Raj 2178, decided on 29-11-2018]
