Promote lecturers according to seniority list: HC directs Govt
GK COURT CORRESPONDENT
Srinagar, Apr 28: The High Court on Thursday directed the State Government to promote the lecturers working in Education Department in accordance with the seniority list drafted under the rules.
While hearing a petition challenging the promotions of some lecturers, the Court of Justice Hasnain Masoodi directed the Commissioner Secretary and Director School Education, Jammu to finalize the seniority list of lecturers in accordance with the rules. “And thereafter effect the promotions in accordance with seniority list so prepared.”
The petition filed by a group of lecturers working in the department said under Government order No 129-EDU of 2011 of February 24, some lecturers had been promoted as senior lecturers “illegally” and in violation of the mandate and spirit laid down by the Supreme Court.
The petitioner had submitted that about 400 lecturers and senior lecturers were regularized beyond DPC Quota from 1992 to 1998. They alleged that the regularization was done against the quota meant for direct recruitees. The petitioners had sought quashing of government order to the extent it relates to the illegally promoted lecturers in excess of the quota meant for them as per recruitment rules.
After hearing Advocate WS Nargal, the High Court issued notice to the State Government and directed it to finalize the seniority list of lecturers in accordance with seniority list prepared under rules.
