appellants are the Female Health Workers appointed on ad-hoc basis
for a consolidated pay of Rs.2500/- over a long time.
is the grievance of the appellants that though 990 posts of Female
Health Workers were sanctioned and though the State Government had,
as early as on 9th June 2003, decided to fill in the said
990 posts of Female Health Workers in the then prevalent scale of pay
of Rs.3050-4590/-, till date, no recruitment process is undertaken.
Instead, the appellants who are qualified Female Health Workers have
been appointed on ad-hoc basis for a consolidated pay of Rs.2500/-.
is apparent that the State Government has, instead of undertaking
regular recruitment process, found out a cheaper short cut of making
appointments on ad-hoc basis for consolidated pay. The State
Government is called upon to explain its conduct in not undertaking
regular recruitment process for around 7 years.
