The High Court had earlier put a stay on the final result of the recruitment process.
On Wednesday, Justice Shivaji Pandey accepted the writ petition of Ramesh Kumar and Others, ordering the start of the recruitment process afresh. The High Court said that the process lacked transparency and is therefore void. Court ordered the Commission to follow the rules and regulations and then come up with the result. Advocate Chakrapani who is representing the writ petitioners said that the High Court has directed the recruitment board to present model question papers and answers on the Commission’s website, inviting the candidates to submit their pleas of objections. The Court also ordered the Commision to constitute an expert committee to resolve such objections.
Only after resolving the objections and following the rules of reservation, should the commission display the results of the mains exam, the Court said. It further went on to say that the cut off for every category must be displayed on the website. It also said that women must be given horizontal reservation as ordered by the honourable Supreme Court.
The Commission would be bound to produce carbon copies of the candidate’s answer sheet in case they ask for the same, under the Right to Information Act.
Earlier, on July 22 2018, 29359 candidates appeared for 1717 vacancies for the post of sub-inspector. The exam was conducted by the Bihar Police Subordinate Services Commission. 10161 applicants cleared the mains examination. Around 195 candidates filed a writ petition, accusing the Commision of arbitrariness and lack of transparency in the conduct of the examination process.
