Historic judgmentby the CAT, Chennai on PSS Group B Examination

Source IRM ASRM Association Blog

Historic judgmentby the CAT, Chennaiin PSS Group B Examination.In view of such circumstances, if this selection is restricted for the vacancy for the year 2003, no harm would be caused to any of the eligible candidates who faced the examination and thus selection for the year 2003 is held valid and the selection for the vacancies for 2004,2005 and,2006 are held to be defective, arbitrary irrational and discriminatory. Thus the claim of the applicants is allowed partly, directing the respondent to declare year wise vacancies for the years 2004,2005,2006 i9n respect of promotion to the cadre of P.S.S. Group B by preparing year wise list of eligible candidates and also vacancies and thereafter hold fresh Limited Departmental Competitive Examination9(LDCE) restricting the present selection only for the vacancies for the year 2003.In result, the OA is partly allowed as above, with no order as to costs.
