Shortlisting of candidates for J&K Public Service Commission challenged

Jammu and Kashmir High Court: A Division Bench of Gita Mittal, CJ and Tashi Rabstan, J., issued a notice to the respondents in regard to the manner in which the short listing of candidates was effected.  

This writ petition was filed to challenge the action of the respondents for bunching the applicants who had applied pursuant to three advertisement notifications for the purposes of short listing without putting them to notice.

It was contended by Mr Pranav Kohli, counsel for the applicant that the complete basis of the selection was changed and Rule 40 of the J&K Public Service Commission (Business and Procedure) Rules, 1980 was violated.

A notice was issued to the respondents in this regard. [Aamir Salim Sheikh v. J&K Public Service Commission, 2018 SCC OnLine J&K 1010, Decided on 26-12-2018]
