G.I., Dept. of Per. & Trg., O.M.No.22012/99/2009-AIS-I, dated 17.3.2015
Subject: Clarifications in the wake of Punjab & Haryana High Court order dated 1.2.2010 in CWP No. 15798 of 2009 filed by Shri Praveen Kumar Vs Union Public Service Commission and others as confirmed by Hon’ble Supreme Court in SLP No. 14002/2010 in the matter of DOPT Vs Praveen Kumar & others.
The undersigned is directed to refer to this Department’s OM No. 22012/99/2009-AIS-1 dated 25.8.2010 on the subject mentioned above and to say that in case of State Civil Services (SCS) officers if Select List is prepared for the vacancies of 2014 the same is required to be styled as select list of 2014 whereas for Non SCS the same is styled as 2015. Also in case of SCS, eligibility is required to be seen as on 1.1.2014 whereas in case of Non SCS the same is to be seen as on 1.1.2015. Thus, there is apparent anomaly in styling the Select List year for SCS officers and Non SCS officers prepared for the vacancies arising during the same year. This anomaly is due to the fact that as the Court order cited above was implemented for SCS officers only.
