Ranchi, Feb 27 (UNI) Jharkhand High Court today conditionally vacated the stay order on the appointment of lecturers in the state by the Jharkhand State Public Commission (JPSC).
Justice N N Tiwary passed the order while hearing a writ petition filed by Jharkhand PHED Sodh Sangh state president Satya Prakash Mishra and its general secretary Chandrojeet Kumar.
The court directed that the JPSC could appoint lecturers in the state, but it would be subject to the final order of this case.
Mr Shree Krishna Pandey appearing on behalf of the petitioner alleged that the JPSC was not following the rules and regulation, laid down by the Supreme Court and University Grants Commission.
Mr Pandey further alleged that the JPSC was favouring a section of candidates.
The Commission had increased the viva marks to 40 per cent against the Supreme Court's direction of maintaining the limit of 15 per cent, Mr Pandey informed.
He also pleaded for holding of fresh interviews for the appointment of lecturers in different universities of the state.
Earlier, the court had directed the JPSC not to final any decision on the appointment of the lecturers.
