Haryana High Court gives green signal for recruitment of 1259 junior engineers, all applications rejected

Haryana News: The Punjab and Haryana High Court has dismissed all petitions challenging the recruitment of 1,259 junior engineer posts, providing relief to the Haryana government and the Staff Selection Commission (SSC). This decision will surely put a smile on the faces of the selected candidates.

While filing the petition, candidate Rishabh and other candidates had informed the Supreme Court that the Haryana Staff Selection Commission had published advertisement for 1259 posts of junior engineer on June 15, 2019. The written examination was then carried out on September 1, 2019 and the opportunity to object was given on September 5, 2019 by releasing the answer key.

Petition submitted for 3 questions

The petitioners had raised objections to five questions that the Commission put to the experts. The experts accepted two objections while rejecting three. After addressing two objections, the Commission published a new answer key. Thereafter, the petitioners had filed a petition in the High Court on the remaining three issues.

The court sought the opinion of experts

The Punjab Haryana High Court, while delivering its decision after hearing all parties, said that in the Ranvijay Singh case, the Supreme Court had made it clear that if there are no allegations against the experts, the courts should accept their opinion. Even if there is confusion among experts on an issue, the benefit goes to the Commission and not to the applicants. Courts cannot be experts on every topic and in such a situation, relying on the opinion of experts is a better option.

The court rejected the petition

The Supreme Court stated that objections were raised on five issues in this case, two of which were accepted by the experts. This clearly shows that these objections were considered impartially. In such a situation, it is not right to deviate from the opinion of the experts. With this decision, the court rejected all petitions and at the same time gave the green signal for JE to be discontinued.
