GOVT CANCELLED PROCESS IN DECEMBER 2013 AFTER FINDING IRREGULARITIES IN GRANTING MARKS AND PHYSICAL TESTS

CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana high court has directed the Punjab government to take action against officers involved in irregularities in the recruitment of jail warders.

During the resumed hearing in a bunch of petitions by candidates who took part in the recruitment, the high court (HC) bench of justice Daya Chaudhary directed the government to finalise the proceedings, already initiated by the jails department against these officers. The court has also sought a status report in this regard by the next date of hearing on September 30.

The HC bench has also asked the government to file an affidavit regarding the age, qualifications and the recruitment rules, etc, under which the government proposes to conduct a fresh recruitment process, and further state as to whether the interest of petitioners were being prejudiced or not.

The affidavit was sought following the petitioners’ contention that innocent candidates must be separated from those favoured by the officers concerned.

As many as 527 posts were advertised in October 2011. The government had told the court that an inquiry found serious irregularities committed by various officers, who were part of recruitment committees. A number of candidates got marks for qualifications they did not possess, while some got no marks despite having the qualifications required, the court was told.

Similar irregularities were found in the conduct of physical tests as well, following which the recruitment process was cancelled in December 2013. Showcause notice has been issued to the officers concerned, and the proceedings are continuing, the court was told.
