The Gujarat High Court has recently ruled that an ad hoc appointee has no right to claim regular employment over a time.
The ruling came after a decade-long legal battle wherein an ad hoc appointee in the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) had sought appointment on regular basis after repeated job extensions.
Acting on a special civil application, the HC vacated an earlier stay order on the termination of ad hoc service of Deepak Parshottam Bhatt, a museum attendant on a fixed term appointment. The court observed that he was not appointed on sanctioned post by following any selection process as per the rules.
