Agartala, May 15, 2019: Giving much relief to the TCS/TPS Gr-II aspirants, the High Court of Tripura today set aside the state government’s order cancelling the recruitment process of TCS/TPS Gr-II that had been initiated in pursuance of an advertisement published in April, 2016.
A Single Bench of Justice Subhasish Talapatra passed the order while hearing a petition filed by an aspirant- Samudra Debbarma. The Court set aside the order primarily on the ground that no amendment in the recruitment rule has been carried out by state government and the recruitment process was in the advanced stage of completion. Justice Talapatra also directed the Tripura Public Service Commission to complete the recruitment process within eight weeks.
The recruitment process was cancelled by an order of the General Administration (Personnel & Training) Department on August 20, last year. The petitioner had challenged the cancellation of the recruitment process on the ground that the new recruitment policy as published under the notification bearing No.F.20(1)-GA(P&T)/18 dated 05.06.2018 issued by the General Administration (Personnel & Training) Department, Government of Tripura cannot have any manner of bearing over the process of recruitment in TCS Grade-II and TPS Gr-II as initiated by the advertisement No.04/2016 dated 30.04.2016.
“The respondent No.3 is directed to complete the selection process within a period of 8 (eight) weeks from the date when they would receive a copy of this order and recommend the selected candidates for appointment to the post of TCS Grade-II and TPS Grade-II within the said stipulated time”, the judgement read.
“It is clarified that this direction of this court shall be restricted to 30 vacancies of the TCS Grade-II and 15 vacancies of TPS Grade-II as declared by the addendum dated 03.07.2017”, the Court further added. “The court agreed with our contention”, reacted the petitioner’s counsel.
