A Division Bench comprising Justice D.K. Jain and Justice Madan B. Lokur asked the respondents to file replies to the petition by January 15, 2004.
The nurses through his counsel, Surat Singh, challenged the declaration of the results for appointment of staff nurses by the hospital submitting that the results were declared without preparing a merit list.
Dr. Singh argued that the declaration of the results without preparing a merit list showed total non-application of mind by the Selection Board.
The petitioners reached the High Court after the Central Administrative Tribunal (CAT) had rejected their petition for quashing declaration of the results. However, CAT had deprecated the respondents for declaring the results without preparing a merit list.
Dr. Singh further submitted that the Delhi Government had on January 21,2002,advertised the posts of 866 staff nurses of which only 37 were for candidates from the general category while the remaining vacancies were reserved for the Scheduled Castes, Tribes and Other Backward Classes.
Countering the Delhi Government decision to reserve as much as 95.7 per cent of the advertised posts, Dr. Singh said the reservation of those many vacancies was violative of the Supreme Court ruling which had put a ceiling of 50 per cent on reservation of government jobs.
