PPS officers’ seniority list uploaded on website: Govt to HC

The Punjab government on Wednesday told the Punjab and Haryana High Court that it had finalised the seniority list of Punjab Public Service (PPS) officers and uploaded it on the website concerned.

This information was submitted after the court of Justice R K Garg had termed Punjab's non-compliance in uploading the seniority list on the department's website as highly "contemptuous". Following its directions, Home Secretary D S Bains and IG (Headquarters) Arpit Shukla appeared before the court on Wednesday.

The court had summoned the officers while acting on a petition filed by retired PPS officer Kamal Kumar, who had sought contempt proceedings against Bains for allegedly wilfully and deliberately disobeying a high court order passed on April 10, 2008.

In the ruling, the court had directed the state to compile a seniority list keeping in view the vacancies (not the posts) at the time of recruitment. It had also directed the state to assign the seniority of candidates belonging to reserve categories. The case will now come up for hearing on February 7.
