SSC CHSL and JE 2015 CAT Order for Disqualified Candidates dated 21.02.2017





SSC CHSL and JE 2015 CAT Order for Disqualified Candidates dated 21.02.2017


CASE SUMMARY:

1) The applicants of OA-263/2017 were all candidates for the post of Junior Engineers in various disciplines for the examination, which commenced in the year 2015. Paper-I was held on 31.01.2016. They were shown to have been rejected although no reason for the same was given.


2) The case of applicant of OA-391/2017 is similar except that in a list published on 25.01.2017, the applicant was shown to have been rejected on the premise ‘Subject’.


3) Applicant of OA-215/2017 was a candidate for Combined Higher Secondary Level (10+2) Examination, 2015 who failed to write the Medium of Examination on SSC CHSL 2015 Paper-II (Descriptive Examination) dated 18.09.2016. 

STATUS: Disposed of by this common order.

ORDER SUMMARY: 

1) 14 judgments were submitted by the applicants in support of their cases.

2) From the above judgments, we find that the Apex Court has ruled that in young age youth do commit some minor mistakes which need to be condoned. They have also held that much hardship and harassment in Administration flows from overemphasis on the external rather than the essential.

3) Thus, our conclusion is that judicial pronouncements are overwhelmingly in favour of the applicants. The mistakes or lapses committed by them were non-essential and not substantive.Cancellation of their candidature for these minor lapses was unwarranted. Enough material was available with the respondents to evaluate them despite the lapses committed by the applicants. If candidates are rejected on these non-essential grounds than the very objective of conducting the competitive examination, namely, to identify the most meritorious candidates for filling up the available posts would be defeated.


4) We, therefore, find merit in the submissions of the applicants and allow all these OAs. We direct the respondents to process the candidature of the applicants herein in case they are not ineligible for any other reason. No costs.
