The High Court has ordered the Bihar government to complete the process of restoration of 1772 lab technicians at the earliest. The court has asked to complete the process of restoration at the earliest by declaring the result of the candidates who fulfill the qualification under the old and amended rules. On Wednesday, a division bench of Chief Justice Sanjay Karol and Justice S Kumar gave this order after hearing about a dozen cases. The court made it clear that the appointment would depend on the final outcome of the cases. The court has ordered the Staff Selection Commission to recommend for appointment by publishing the results of the candidates who fulfill the qualifications in the rules of 2014 and amendments made in 2019.
Staff Selection Commission had released the advertisement for the recruitment of 1772 Lab Technician on 21st June 2015. Lawyers on behalf of the applicants and successful students gave their consent to expeditiously complete the reinstatement process as per the rules. At the same time, the court said that the lab technicians working on contract during this corona period also need to be included in this restoration, but those who do not fulfill the qualification, their situation is different.
Senior advocate PK Shahi told the court that he is not in favor of removing the employees already working on contract. Despite this, about 600 Lab Technician posts are vacant and all eligible applicants can be included in this recruitment. On this, senior advocate Manan Kumar Mishra, advocate Vishwajit Kumar Mishra and other lawyers gave their consent. The next hearing will be on February 23.
