Madras High Court ordered interim stay on Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission’s amended selection list of 652 candidates selected for various posts under the Combined Engineering Services (CES) Examinations.
The order was passed by Justice S Nagamuthu after hearing a petition by R V Vijayabhaskaran of East Gandhipuram in Komarapalayam in Nammakal district. Vijayabhaskar challenged the decision to amend the selection list by Controller of examinations, TNPSC, and secretary of TNPSC as discriminatory and unjustifiable.
Vijayabhaskaran in his submission said he has applied for the post of assistant inspector of factories and wrote the CES exams. The petitioner submitted that his register number figured in the initial provisional list of 742 candidates. He contended that after four months the Controller of Examination published amended list of 652 candidates and he failed to find his register number.
He argued the action of the respondents in cancelling the earlier list is not only discriminatory but also unjustifiable.
