The way for UP Daroga Recruitment 2016 has been cleared in Uttar Pradesh. The Supreme Court has given its green signal. The Allahabad High Court has allowed the petition of the UP government against the order. The decision of the High Court has been set aside by the Supreme Court. In Uttar Pradesh, the Supreme Court has cleared the way for the recruitment of about 2500 sub-inspectors, platoon commandants (PACs) and fire brigade officers in the police. The court has set aside the decision of the Allahabad High Court to annul the results of the written examination held in December 2017 and the results of other examinations including physical examinations held thereafter.
The High Court had canceled the result for ignoring the rules and directed to prepare the merit list again. A bench of Justice UU Lalit and Justice Vineet Sharan has accepted the petition of the UP government against the decision of the High Court. The bench has asked to implement the result released by the authority in February 2019 at the earliest.
In fact, applications were invited by the Government of Uttar Pradesh in the year 2016 for the recruitment of 2400 Sub Inspectors, 210 Palatoon Commandants and 97 Fire Officers in the State Police.
630926 people had applied for these posts. Out of these, 11734 students were called for further examinations. 50% marks in the written examination was mandatory. Out of these, 5461 had secured more than 50 per cent marks while 5713 had secured 50 per cent (including normalization). All 11734 students were called for further examinations. After this, the final list of those who secured 50 percent was prepared.
After this there was a round of litigation in the High Court and the High Court canceled the result for ignoring the rules in this conducted examination and directed to prepare the merit list again. This decision was challenged by the UP government in the Supreme Court. The Supreme Court had reserved the decision after completing the hearing in February 2021.
