    Uncertainty Over HSSC Group C and D Recruitments; Clarity Expected in 5 Days

    HSSC NEWS: In recent developments, the Punjab and Haryana High Court has annulled the allocation of 5 marks based on socio-economic criteria in Haryana’s government recruitment processes. This decision has cast a shadow of uncertainty over the ongoing recruitments for Group C and D positions by the Haryana Staff Selection Commission (HSSC).

    However, it is anticipated that the situation will become clearer within the next two to five days. The High Court’s verdict was delivered approximately nine days ago.

    High Court Decision Under Review

    Himmat Singh, the newly appointed chairman of HSSC, has taken over from Anurag Rastogi, who previously held the additional charge as the commission’s chairman. As of now, HSSC has not decided whether to file a review petition against the High Court’s decision or to appeal to the Supreme Court.

    The government’s Legal Team Also Reviewing

    Chairman Himmat Singh mentioned that there are several legal complexities involved, and their entire team is diligently working on them. The Chief Minister has also stated that the government’s legal team is reviewing the matter and will soon file a petition in the Supreme Court.

    When asked if the commission would not seek a review in the High Court, Himmat Singh responded, “We are discussing our current plan, which we will file soon. It is possible that once the draft is ready, we might go for a review or an appeal in the Supreme Court.”

    Recruitment On Hold Until Further Notice

    The chairman confirmed that no recruitments would proceed until they have examined the High Court’s decision from all angles and determined actionable points. The High Court’s ruling clearly stated the elimination of the 5 marks based on socio-economic criteria and directed that the recruitment process should be based on CET scores. The positions must be re-advertised, and the process restarted from where it had stopped, excluding CET.

    Clarity Expected in 5 Days

    Regarding the potential for errors in the High Court’s decision, the commission is considering either filing for a review to correct these errors or directly appealing to the Supreme Court and awaiting a possible stay order. Himmat Singh emphasized that they are currently studying their options and could choose to file a review if it seems beneficial.

    The chairman concluded by saying that the decision on whether to proceed with a review petition or an appeal to the Supreme Court will be made soon, following consultations with the legal team. He assured that a resolution is expected within the next five days.
