Rajasthan High Court clears decks for appointment of 1398 school teachers

Jodhpur: Rejecting over 100 petitions challenging the School Teachers Recruitment Examination, conducted by Rajasthan Public Service Commission (RPSC), the Rajasthan High Court today vacated the stay on appointments and gave the state government the green signal to proceed.

Justice Nirmaljit Kaur while refusing to interfere either on the issue of question paper or the answer keys, rejected all the petitions and vacated the stay on the appointments.

Some unsuccessful candidates had moved separate petitions in the high court challenging the results of the examination, leading to the court stay on appointments.

The petitioners prayed that the state government and the RPSC be directed to re-conduct and re-organise various examination papers or re-evaluate those papers and then re-publish the answer key.

Counsel for RPSC J P Joshi argued in the court that the entire process right from the notification to the results was completely transparent.

He also argued that after releasing the first answer key, a revised key was issued following the objections.

The court had completed the hearing in the case last week and had reserved the order.

Pronouncing the order today, Justice Nirmaljit Kaur, while refusing to interfere either on the issue of question paper or the answer keys, rejected all the petitions and vacated the stay on the appointments.

The RPSC had conducted School Lecturer Recruitment Examination – 2015 for the 1398 vacant posts of 19 subjects in July last year and the results were declared in September.

But before, the appointments could be made, the matter reached the court.
