Govt. Medical College To Issue Appointment Letter To Candidate: MP HIGH COURT
Recently, the High Court Of Madhya Pradesh directed a Government Medical College to issue an appointment letter to the Petitioner as she was the successful candidate who got selected as the Assistant Professor in the said Institution.
The Facts of the case are that the petitioner gave the interview for the post of Assistant Professor in a Government Medical College in District Vidisha. When the result was declared on 15.02.2022, she was among the successful candidates under the general category. But even after 40 days of announcing the result, College failed to issue the appointment letter to her.
The learned counsel for the petitioner contended that the delay was due to political pressure and that they are trying to recruit some other candidate in her place. He further submitted that despite having a shortage of faculty in medical colleges across the State, the authorities are dragging their feet to issue her the appointment letter thereby causing otherwise undue hardship to the students at large.
Justice Sanjay Dwivedi after taking cognizance of the submissions made by the Petitioner directed the authority concerned to take appropriate steps for giving appointments to the selected candidates including the petitioner without wasting any further time. If there is any obstacle in giving the appointment, the reasons are recorded and communicated to the petitioner.
It is expected that the aforesaid exercise of issuing the appointment letter be completed within 15 days of receiving the Court’s order. However, the Court clarified that it has not expressed any views on the merits of the case. With the aforesaid directions, the petition was disposed off.
