CHENNAI: The HC on Friday issued a notice to the TNPSC on a petition seeking to re-publish the list of candidates selected for the post of Civil Judges.
The petitioner K Nandini also sought to exclude five candidates from the general category of those Persons who had Studied in Tamil Medium (PSTM) in the re-published list alleging that they had not secured the mandatory 40 pc marks to qualify under the category.
Admitting the petition, the Division Bench comprising Justice V Ramasubramanian and Justice T Mathivanan directed the TNPSC to file its reply by July 13.
According to the petitioner, the process of selection is based on the marks obtained in the written examination and the viva-voce. 590 persons were shortlisted and called for certificates’ verification.
Subsequently, interviews were conducted in the TNPSC office by a panel of five Judges of the Madras HC and the final rank list of 151 candidates was published.
Nandini claimed that she was kept out of the provisional selection list, as the rank list published was wrongly filled up with the ineligible candidates from the General PSTM category.
