Justice Biswajit Basu took serious note of the SSC proposal and found it a major digression from the notification after advocate general SN Mookherjee submitted that the state didn’t support the plan.
In such circumstances, the SSC should be dissolved, the judge observed.
The HC gave a day’s time to the advocate general to present the state’s stand, following which the court would pass an order.
The state government, in its May 19 notification, announced the creation of 6,861 supernumerary posts and gave a detailed break-up, specifying that waitlisted candidates adversely affected due to recommendations would be absorbed.
The SSC assistant secretary made a plea for the illegally appointed teaching and non-teaching staff. “Such a proposal will result in no loss of jobs and enable such appointees to have means of livelihood,” the SSC said in its affidavit.
These 6,861 posts included 1,932 posts of assistant teachers in classes IX and X, 247 posts of assistant teachers for classes IX to XII, 1,102 in teaching category, 1,980 Group D posts and 1,600 posts (750 for work education and 850 for physical education teachers).
