High court makes EFLUrecruitment conditional | Hyderabad News


Hyderabad: Justice B Vijaysen Reddy of the Telangana high court has made it clear that the selection made last week to fill the posts of assistant professors, etc., at English and Foreign Languages University (EFLU) would be subject to the outcome of the writ petition being heard by the court.
The judge gave this interim direction while hearing a petition filed by Kanaparthi Pavani of Hyderabad who questioned the legal validity of the teaching faculty recruitment notification-2020 given by the university that ignored key statutory provisions like OBC reservations.
Upon hearing the contention by university counsel that the selection was complete and appointment letters too were given to the selected candidates following the recent decision of a division bench that vacated the stay imposed on the recruitment by the National BC Commission (NCBC), the judge said that the whole selection would be subject to the judgment of this court in this petition.
“Give a list of selected candidates to the petitioner and inform all the selected candidates about the ongoing case against their selection,” he said.
It may be recalled EFLU had challenged the legal validity of a stay imposed by the NCBC on the ground that the latter did not possess any powers to stay the recruitment. A division bench agreed with EFLU in this regard and vacated the stay. The bench, however, said that it had not expressed any opinion on the university’s action of ignoring OBC reservations in the recruitment.
The NCBC too said that it would bring to the notice of the President of India the injustice being done to OBCs at EFLU. “We will also challenge the order of the HC bench before the Supreme Court,” Achary Thalloju, member of NCBC, said. The case will come up for a hearing on October 21.
