Chandigarh, November 2

Acting on a petition seeking quashing of an advertisement to fill the post of the Director, Animal Husbandry, on a deputation basis, the Punjab and Haryana High Court has stayed the appointment.

Issuing a notice of motion for December 8, Justice Sudip Ahluwalia asserted: “Any appointment to the post in question shall not be made in the meantime.”

The direction came on a petition filed against the state of Punjab and other respondents by Dr HS Kahlon and another petitioner through counsel Vivek Sharma.

Appearing before the Bench through video-conferencing, Sharma contended advertising the post for filling it on a deputation basis was against the rules. The petitioners were eligible for the post, but the respondent was not considering them for promotion to the post in an illegal and arbitrary manner.

Directions were also sought to the respondent to consider the petitioners for promotion to the post as they were fully eligible in accordance with the relevant rules.

The Bench was told the post was to be filled on a deputation basis for three years on an extendable basis. It was added the respondents had opened the post for all departments in the Central and state governments, besides universities and research institutes.
