Technical Education. It is in these circumstances, this writ petition
has been filed by the petitioner complaining that while his result is
withheld, candidates are going to be advised against the vacancies.
2. Learned Standing Counsel for the respondents has
obtained instructions in the matter. He submits that the ranked list
was published on 26/04/2010 and so far only one vacancy has been

clarification about the genuineness of the certificates from the
Directorate of Technical Education, such a step cannot, prima facie,

In view of the above, this writ petition is disposed of directing
that until clarification is received from the Directorate of Technical
Education, advice from the ranked list shall not be made
overlooking the petitioner’s ranking.
This writ petition is disposed of as above.
