Rajasthan Police Constable Recruitment: High Court verdict, exam results will be released from state level merit
Police headquarters was going 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. But the result will be released only after the case is settled in court.
The process of issuing district wise merit of Constable Recruitment Examination was challenged in the petition. It is argued in the petition that when all the districts are recruiting from a recruitment advertisement, then the same cutoff should be issued at the state level also after extracting the same result. 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 the Rajasthan Police Subordinate Service Rules-1989 provides that the same joint merit will be made in the 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 has been considered as prevalent. He said that in the year 2013 police constable recruitment was selected on the basis of merit of 49.50 percent, 74 percent of Sikar district and 71 percent of Dausa district. This recruitment was against the Constitution and the Rajasthan Police Subordinate Services Rules.
