Respected experts, I appeared for Junior Hindi Exam 2013 and final result of this exam was declared in February 2014. In the final exam I was selected for the post of Junior Hindi Translator. GSI(Geological Survey of India) was allotted to me. But after a few days I received a letter for GSI that they are returning my dossier to SSC because I do not possess the required educational qualifications. According to the GSI education qualification for this post is MA in English/Hindi OR BA with Hindi and English as main subjects plus diploma in translation But the education qualifications given by SSC were different.According to SSC Those candidate who have done BA(Hons) English with Hindi as a subsidiary/MIL subjects are eligible for the post of Junior Hindi Translator.
GSI returned my dossier to SSC, I had a word with SSC they said that they will send my dossier to another department. In the month of October 2014 they have sent my dossier to CAG(Comptroller and Auditor General of India) and now CAG is also saying that I am uneligible as I do not possess the required educational qualifications.
What is my fault, I applied according to the education qualifications mentioned in the notice of this exam. When my dossier was returned by GSI, SSC was already aware of my qualifications, they should have sent my dossier to department for which I am eligible.
Now my question is Can I sue both CAG and SSC for not giving the government job which I deserve.Candidate who appeared with me had already drawn close to 2 years salary.
It is possible for any department to return my dossier if I am eligible according to the SSC. Please help

Thank you very much for your expert opinion Yes the recruitment rules of both Gsi and Cag are different from SSC. But I would like to add some points If there is difference in recruitment rules of SSC and user departments then why SSC is issuing advertisement with their own recruitment rules and making fool of thousands of candidates every year.SSC is a government agency under DOPT. My dossier was sent to Cag in October 2014 and they have taken a year to check my eligibility. They could have checked my eligibility in October 2014 as well. Who will be responsible for this delay. SSC is not saying that I am not eligible. Is it legally binding for SSC to give me a job as I am eligible according to them

Certainly, you have a case. SSC is much more than a recruiting agency. It as an agency of the State so are the other agencies involved. Article 16 applies. You may approach the jurisdictional Bench of the CAT.

I shall concur with Shri P. Venu.
If there is a disconnect then that is also wrongdoing of all parties involved.
GSI/CAG or whatever has to release right dossier to SSC or anyone else and also should pass the draft of advt.
