HC directs Secretary SSB to appear in person
SSB selects candidate, department says post nonexistent
D A RASHID
Srinagar, Dec 1: The High Court has directed the Secretary Services Selection Board to appear in the court along with the record regarding the selection of a candidate, who refused to be appointed by the Geology and Mining department on the ground that the post was filled over a decade back.
“Secretary Services Selection Board is directed to appear in person along with the record on December 2, 2011 before the Court,” says the order Passed by Justice Mansoor Ahmad Mir.
The Court passed the order after the petitioner, Kamar Zaman pleaded before it that he was selected against the post of Mine Sardar by the selection agency SSB but the state’s Industries and Commerce Department refused to endorse the selection in keeping with the grounds that the post was referred to the SSB in 1997 and currently there is no post lying vacant with the department of Geology and Mining for which the post was advertised.
The petitioner had earlier filed a petition through his counsel, M A Makhdoomi, before the court seeking directions for his appointment saying he was interview by SSB after his eligibility was found correct.
The counsel for the petitioner had earlier argued that Zaman had applied against the post under RBA category and had fulfilled all the requisite requirements of eligibility and his selection for the post was made within the prescribed norms of selection under law.
Zaman, who represented his case before the court on Wednesday, informed it that the selection agency SSB forwarded the select list of Mine Sardar to the government through Commissioner Secretary Commerce and Industries for formal orders of the appointment.
“The Commissioner Secretary instead of issuing formal orders has raised a controversial issue that there is no post currently available as the post was already forwarded to SSB in 1997,” he told the court.
Seeking direction for his appointment, petitioner submitted before the court that the Commerce and Industries department and Director Geology and Mining have failed to issue appointment order in his favour.
