Punjab and Haryana High Court: Don’t finalise selection to IAS from non-HCS quota

Tribune News Service

Chandigarh, August 20

The Punjab and Haryana High Court has asked the Union of India and Haryana not to finalise the selection of candidates for Indian Administrative Service (IAS) from non-HCS quota.

The direction by the Bench of Justice Rakesh Kumar Jain and Justice Ashok Kumar Verma came on a petition filed against the Union of India, the state and other respondents by Surender Singh Dahiya, a Class I officer posted in the Agriculture Department in Haryana.

Dahiya had moved the High Court, challenging the order of the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) on August 7. The Bench was told during the course of hearing that the petitioner was aggrieved by the decision of the government dated June 9, through which the Haryana Public Services Commission (HPSC) was asked to hold a written examination for the selection to the IAS from non-state civil services officers’ quota.

In his plea before the CAT, the petitioner argued that the decision to conduct the written examination was against the All-India Service Act, 1951, and the Rules and Regulations framed thereunder. Before parting with the order, the Bench also issued notice of motion to other respondents, including the HPSC.
