Rajeev Kumar (Professioanl Social worker)     20 January 2010

is non-presence of subject expert in interview panel unlawfu

I had appeared in a company ( govt undertaking) for the post of counsellors. the number of post  Management Trainee ( Administration) were advertised 100. among them 18 post were for counsellors.

in written exam, 400 candidates were selected for intervew.

I appeared in interview. I kept checking the website of company. after nine months when result was not declared. I filed RTI on company.

then first time I got to know that result was declared and not published in any newspaper nor displayed on website.

only 13 cadidates were selected out of them 3 candidates were selected for the counsellor.

the post of counsellor was meant for dealing with pschological problems of  employee.

but in the interview none of the question was asked from mental health issues.

there was none of expert related to psychology/psychiatry/ other mental health profession.

here my queries are

(1) whether non -declaration of result on public media is unlawful?

(2) whether non-inclusion/ non-presence of any mental health professioanal in interview is unlawful, especially where mental health professional was going to bee recruited

(3) whether sudeen decrease of number of vacant position without giving any reason on website /public media is unlawful?

(4) a  huge number of candidates were involved in the hope of 100 posts, while only 13 post were filled. a huge number of candidates were mentally harrassed. is not unethetical?

all respected members are requested to give your wise comment with proper legal reference

thanks and warm regards

Certainly this is disputable.  You can file a writ petition seeking to quash the selection process and reconduct the selection process de novo (fresh) with fresh publication of results in the public newspaper as well as in website.  You can also seek a specialist interviewer for interviewing candidates in respect of the post of mental health professionals/counsellors.

 I concur with Krishna. The process is apparently arbitrary and unfair. You may challenge this.

Yes, you can challenge the interview!
