Patna ----------------------------Respondents


2 14.9.2011 Petitioners are the candidates who applied against vacant

post for recruitment, which was to be carried out by the State of Bihar.

Appointment related to 299 posts of Sub-Inspectors of Police through

direct recruitment, which was to be done through what is known as

Staff Selection Commission.

After selection process writ applications came before the

High Court alleging many a things. The issue did not rest at the High

Court but travelled to Hon’ble Supreme Court as well. A decision in

the case of Arvind Kumar Etc. Etc. vs. State of Bihar and other

analogous case came to be rendered on 2.2.2011. This decision is

reported in 2011 (3) PLJR 136 (SC).

Submission of counsel for the petitioners is that

petitioners should be treated in the same fashion as the Hon’ble

Supreme Court treated other candidates and even his claim should be

considered when a fresh exercise for written and physical tests is held.

In the normal circumstances, the Court would have had no

difficulty in allowing such a prayer because all similarly situated

persons have been given chances after intervention of the Court but

there is limitation on this count because of the observation of the

Apex Court in para-6 of the said decision. Para-6 of the said decision

is quoted herein below:

” In the peculiar facts and circumstances of these
cases, we direct the Bihar Staff Selection Commission
to hold fresh examinations for the 299 posts of Sub-
Inspectors of Police and only the appellants, who were
writ petitioners, before the High Court of Judicature
at Patna, whose cases were adjudicated upon or are
pending before the High Court (total 223 only as per
the list given in Court by Mr. Ranjit Kumar, learned
Senior Counsel) would be at liberty to appear in the
physical and written examinations. ”


Petitioners have approached the High Court only after the

decision had been rendered by the Hon’ble Supreme Court as writ has

been filed on 28.7.2011. As liberty has been granted to limited

persons to the dispute as per the observation of the Supreme Court,

case of petitioners do not come within the ambit of the said decision.

If this writ had been filed prior to passing of the order by the Apex

Court, petitioners may have had a case. Any indulgence with regard to

the claim of the petitioners will have to come from the Apex Court

and not by this Court.

Writ therefore is dismissed. Petitioners may approach the

Hon’ble Supreme Court on this issue in light of the observation

contained in para-6 quoted above.

( Ajay Kumar Tripathi, J.)
