The Punjab and Haryana High Court has provided a big relief to the Manohar Lal government. The High Court has approved the application to remove the ban on the appointment of 3206 posts of the Ministry of Skill Development and has also given the green signal to the appointment. Let us inform that the employees working on contract basis in the ministry had challenged the recruitment.

Giving a big relief to the Haryana Government, the Punjab-Haryana High Court has given a green signal to the appointment of 3206 posts being done by the Ministry of Skill Development. Allowing the application of the Haryana government to lift the stay on the appointment, the High Court made it clear that this recruitment would be subject to the final decision of the petition.

The Ministry of Skill Development, Government of Haryana had released the advertisement for 3206 posts. This advertisement was challenged by the employees working on contract basis in the ministry. The petitioners had contended that he was appointed on contract basis in 2011 after the completion of the selection process. He could not become a part of Haryana’s regularization policy due to non-completion of three years.

The High Court, while issuing a notice to the Haryana government on the petition, had given permission to conduct the examination but stayed the further recruitment. Now the Haryana government and the applicants involved in the selection process have filed an application in the High Court demanding removal of the ban. The High Court said that when the government is doing regular recruitment, then how can a person appointed on contract basis seek a stay on this. This demand can be made only when a contractual appointment is being made in his place. The High Court, while allowing the application with these observations, removed the stay from the appointment. However, the High Court clarified that these appointments would be subject to the final decision of this petition.
