The matter of releasing the result of Rajasthan Police Constable Recruitment 2019 can again be hanging in the court. In the case of the appointment of 5438 posts of Rajasthan Police Constable Recruitment 2019, the state government and private parties have filed an appeal challenging the bench order of the single court of the High Court.
On 24 February, the High Court, while giving its verdict on the petition of Zaheer Ahmed, ordered to release the examination result as per state-level merit instead of the district-wise result.
The court considered the district-wise merit-making, in addition to the constitutional provisions, a violation of the Rajasthan Police Act-2009 and Rajasthan Police Subordinate Service Rules 1989.
Also, the DGP was ordered to make a state-wise merit list of the candidates appearing in the recruitment examination. The court had also ordered the selection process to be completed according to the merit of eligible candidates in 3 months.
Rajasthan Police Constable Recruitment Updates
The High Court, while hearing Zaheer Ahmed’s petition, had on January 8 stayed an interim stay on releasing the district-wise results of the written examination. Later on the conclusion of the debate, the decision was reserved on 10 February.
Police Headquarters was to release the result of constable recruitment in the month of January. About 13 lakh candidates were sitting in this recruitment examination held on 6, 7, and 8 November. The final answer key of the exam was released.
The process of issuing district-wise merit of the Constable Recruitment Examination was challenged in the petition. The argument in the petition was that when recruitment is being done in all the districts through a recruitment advertisement, then at the state level also, the same result should be taken and the same cutoff should be issued.
Issuing different results in every district will discriminate against the candidates. The petition has demanded that only one merit list of the entire Rajasthan be released.
Ajaj Nabi, counsel for the petitioner Zaheer Ahmed, said that Rule No. 25 of Rajasthan Police Subordinate Service Rules-1989 provides that the same joint merit will be made in police recruitment in the state. Its standing order was also issued by DGP Rajasthan.
There was a provision to create joint merit in Rajasthan Police recruitment. But at the moment Rajasthan Police Headquarters make district-wise merit.
Beyond the rules, the basis of district-wise merit was considered to be prevalent only. He said that in the year 2013, 49.50 percent of the police constable recruitment, 74 percent of the Sikar district, and 71 percent of the Dausa district were selected on the basis of merit.
This recruitment was against the Constitution and the Rajasthan Police Subordinate Services Rules.
