Hon'ble Yashwant Varma,J.
The only contention advanced on this petition is for the respondents being commanded to issue an appointment letter to the petitioner and appoint him on the post of Assistant Teacher pursuant to a selection held in 2013.
The case of the petitioner was that he was duly shortlisted for the post of Assistant Teacher (Maths and Science) in terms of a recruitment process which took place pursuant to an advertisement dated 11 July 2013. It is his contention that in the above recruitment process, the petitioner was allocated 62.69 quality point marks. He contends that although the petitioner was permitted to participate in the counselling, no appointment order was made in his favour. In the meanwhile, a writ petition came to be preferred before this Court on behalf of some professional degree holders asserting therein that they were also entitled to be considered for selection and appointment. The above writ petition (Writ Petition No. 34944 of 2014 Satyendra Kumar Singh and others Vs. State of U.P. and others) came to be disposed of on 11 September, 2015 with a direction that professional degree holders be also considered for the purposes of appointment as Assistant Teacher. Referring to the pleadings contained in the impleadment application filed before the Court today, the petitioner contends that although he had obtained 62.69 quality point marks, one Kapil Pandey who has obtained 62.27 quality point marks had been selected and issued appointment letter.
Learned counsel appearing for the third respondent submits that the candidature of the petitioner shall be revisited and reconsidered by the respondents bearing in mind the fact that he has obtained quality point marks of 62.69. It is further submitted that in case any person with lower quality point marks has been selected and appointed, the petitioner shall be accorded similar consideration.
Accordingly and in light of the submissions so made, this writ petition shall stand disposed of with a direction calling upon the third respondent to consider the claim of the petitioner for the post of Assistant Teacher (Maths and Science). The above claim of the petitioner may be accorded consideration and appropriate orders be passed thereon expeditiously and preferably within a period of one month from the date of production of a certified copy of the order of the Court.
Needless to state, this Court has not gone into the merits or otherwise of the claim laid by the petitioner and has proceeded only on the basis of the statements so made before it.
Obviously, therefore, it shall be open to the respondents to verify the records and other particulars of the petitioner and thereafter proceed to rule upon his eligibility for being selected and/or appointed.
