Chief Secretary SC Agarwal to conduct enquiry

March 8th, 2010 Chandigarh Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal Monday ordered an inquiry into allegations of malpractices in the recruitment of doctors by the Punjab Public Service Commission (PSC).

The decision follows reports of alleged irregularities in the recruitment made recently through the PPSC. State Chief Secretary S.C. Aggarwal has been asked to conduct the inquiry and submit the report within 30 days, a government spokesman said Monday.

Chief minister's spokesperson said: 'The government took a serious note of allegations of malpractices in recruitment.

'We recruited over 19,000 teachers and there has not been even a single complaint in any of the appointments made. The government has strictly enforced the criterion of merit as the sole yardstick for appointments and other government dealings,' he said.

There are allegations that 45 doctors were interviewed by the PPSC within minutes and selected for government jobs.

AC No. 18 of 2008

i) Sh. Shalinder Singh, on behalf of the complainant.
ii) Sh. Kesar Singh, Legal Advisor, on behalf of the respondent.

On the face of it, the application for information of the complainant in this case concerns the personal particulars of third parties and it cannot therefore be supplied to him. The complainant was therefore asked to clarify the precise information which is required, and he has clarified that the PPSC has considered some candidates for the post of College Lecturer to be ineligible (in accordance with the prescribed qualifications for eligibility) because the results of the M.Phil examination in their case was declared after the year 1993. The complainant wants to know whether the question of the concerned candidates being eligible, because they had appeared in the requisite written examination and viva voce prior to 1993, was considered by the PPSC and if so, the reasons recorded on the basis of which this fact was discounted and the candidates were nevertheless declared ineligible. The respondent may examine his record and if any such information is available therein, the same should be provided to the complainant, otherwise he may be informed that no examination of this point was found in the record, and the candidates were declared ineligible because they were considered to have acquired the qualification of M.Phil after 1993, according to the time when the results were declared.
Adjourned to 10 AM on 20-3-2008 for confirmation of compliance.

Date of Decision: 29.01.2007

State of Punjab and others ......Appellants through
Mr. Sanjeev Sharma, Addl. Advocate General, Punjab
Dr. Balbir Bhardwaj .......Respondent through
Mr. Sunil Chadha, Advocate


1. Whether Reporters of Local Newspapers may be allowed to see the judgment ?

2. To be referred to the Reporters or not ?

3. Whether the judgment should be reported in the Digest ?

Vijender Jain, Chief Justice (Oral)
Aggrieved by the order passed by the learned Single Judge, the
State of Punjab has filed the present appeal.

The respondent joined the Indian Army, on 25.04.1966, as a
Lieutenant. He was discharged on 18.11.1976.

The Punjab Public Service Commission issued an advertisement dated 2.12.1978, appended to the writ petition as Annexure P-3, inviting applications for 39 posts of Dental Assistant Surgeons. 7 posts were reserved for Indian Armed Forces Personnel appointed in the armed forces on or after 01.11.1962 and released thereafter. As the respondent, was eligible for the post of Dental Assistant Surgeon, under the quota reserved for Armed Forces Personnel, he applied and was selected. He was appointed as an adhoc Dental Assistant Surgeon vide memo dated 5.5.1979.

He, thereafter, made a representation praying for the grant of benefit of military service. Rejection of his representation led to the filing of a writ petition. The writ petition was allowed by holding that the respondent was deemed to have been appointed under the 1978 Punjab State Technical (Medical and Engineering) Services Rules (for short 1978 Rules) and was therefore, entitled to the benefit of military service.

Mr. Sanjeev Sharma, Addl. Advocate General, for the State of
Punjab assails the findings of the learned Single Judge on the ground that the respondent was not entitled to the benefit of military service under the 1978 Rules as these rules stood repealed, on 31.12.1978 i.e. before the respondents appointment as a Dental Assistant Surgeon on 5.5.1979. It is, therefore, argued that the learned Single Judge erred in granting benefit of
military service under the 1978 Rules.

A query addressed to learned counsel for the appellant that if
the respondent was not appointed under the 1978 Rules, then under what rules, was he appointed, did not draw any response. Except for a bald statement in paragraph No.9 of the written statement, filed by the appellant, to the effect that the respondent was appointed against a reserved post for released Indian Armed Forces Personnel, under the provisions of prevailing instructions issued by the State Government, no instructions, rules or regulations, other than the 1978 Rules, were brought to the notice of the learned Single Judge or have been placed before this Court. The so called “prevailing instructions” have failed to see the light of day. As the respondent was admittedly appointed against a post reserved for Armed Forces Personnel's in accordance with the 1978 Rules, the learned Single Judge correctly returned a finding that the respondent was deemed to have been appointed under the 1978 Rules.

Another aspect that has been highlighted by learned counsel for
the respondent is that the vacancy arose on 2.12.1978, when the
advertisement was issued by the Punjab Public Service Commission, at the behest of the appellant. The advertisement issued is as under :-

ADVERTISEMENT NO.25 Applications are invited by 1.1.1979 (16.1.1979) for applicants abroad in the case of categories No. III and IV for the following posts:-

II) Thirty Nine (39) posts of DENTAL ASSISTANT SURGEON (Class-II), Ten posts reserved for Member of Schedule Castes of Punjab, for Backward Classes of Punjab and seven for Indian Armed Forces Personnel, who had joined the Indian Army or were commissioned on or after 01.11.1962 and were released thereafter Pays:- Rs.400-1100 plus usual allowances. Three advance increments admissible to Post Graduate. Age between 20 and 35 years on 01.01.1978 relaxable for Govt. employee to the extent of their service i.e.

(i) a degree of B.D.S. from a recognised University (ii) must be
registered as Dental Surgeon under Dental Act, 1948 (iii) a pass
in Punjabi of Matric or its equivalent standard. Candidates not
having such qualification will have to acquire the same within a
period of six months from the date of their appointment failing
which their services will be terminated. Higher Dental
qualifications preferred.

A bare perusal of the aforesaid advertisement reveals reservation for a class of Indian Armed Forces Personnel, who had joined the Indian Armed Forces or were commissioned on or after 01.11.1962, as envisaged by rule 3(e), i.e. a reservation of 20% for Armed Forces Personnel's. Rule 3(e) of the 1978 Rules is to the following effect:-

3(e) Released Indian Armed Forces Personnel means the Indian Armed Forces Personnel's who were commissioned to or who joined the Armed Forces of the Union, as the case may be, on or after 1st day of November, 1962, but before the 10th day of January, 1968 and who were released on demobilization thereafter but does not include:-

i) Volunteer Reserved Forces Personnel of the Armed Forces of the Union called upon for temporary service; or

ii) Indian Armed Forces personnel who, before their appointment against vacancies reserved under these rules:-

a) are granted permanent commission or;

b) joined or join a civil service of the Union or a Civil Services of a State or a civil post under the Union or a State after their release from the Armed Forces of the Union;

iii) Engineers and Doctors employed under the Central Governments or State Governments or Governmentowned industrial undertakings after 1963, who were required to serve in the Armed Forces of the Union for a minimum prescribed period under the Compulsory Liability Scheme and who are granted Short Service Commission under the rules during the period of such service; It is, thus, apparent that the advertisement pursuant, whereto the respondent was appointed, was issued in terms of rule 3(e) of the 1978 Rules. The respondent was selected and appointed in accordance with these Rules. The learned Single Judge, thus, rightly granted the benefit of military service.

The impugned judgment does not call for any interference.

There being no merit in this appeal, the same is dismissed.





Civil Writ Petition No.680 of 2009

Date of Decision: September 03, 2009

Dr. Nirlep Kaur .....PETITIONER(S)
State of Punjab and Another .....RESPONDENT(S)


Mr. G.S. Chahal, Advocate, for the petitioner.
Ms. Charu Tuli, Senior Deputy Advocate General, Punjab, for the respondents.

In this petition filed under Article 226/227 of the Constitution of India, prayer is for issuance of a writ in the nature of certiorari, quashing Letter dated 8.12.2008 (Annexure P-11). The Department, at the time of selection, had sought places of preference from the petitioner.

Prayer further has been made for issuance of a writ in the nature of mandamus directing the respondents to allot a station to the petitioner of her choice, as per preferences given by the petitioner. It has been pleaded that the petitioner applied for the post of Lecturer (Physical Education College Cadre) for which the petitioner was selected vide Annexure P-1, which reads as under:-


It is the case of the petitioner that four preferences were given. The respondents, however, did not post the petitioner to either of the places. It is in this background that the writ petition has been filed.

Learned counsel for the respondents has contended that there was no vacant post at any of the places for which option had been given by the petitioner. The petitioner was required to join duties within 21 days of issuance of appointment letter. On request of the petitioner, the joining time was extended by four months. The petitioner, however, did not join duties and therefore, is no more an employee of the Government.

I have considered the issue. Annexure P-1 makes it evident that although options had been taken, the Government however reserves the right to post the petitioner anywhere in accordance with administrative exigencies. In this view of the matter, the petitioner could not have claimed a right to be posted at the place opted for.
