Gauhati High Court endorses Limited Competitive Examination for the IPS, sets aside the order of the Central Administrative Tribunal

The Limited Competitive Examination (LCE) for induction into the Indian Police Service (IPS) was stayed by the Central Administrative Tribunal last year in a Petition essentially filed by officers of the State Police Services.

The CAT had later allowed the petition and quashed the notification of the examination as well as the amendment of the Rules incorporating LCE as one of the entries into the IPS.

The verdict of the CAT was then challenged before the Hon’ble Gauhati High Court by the Central Govt and also by some officers who had applied for the LCE.

The High Court has now set aside the decision of the CAT and has upheld the validity of amendment of the rules through which LCE has been introduced.

The entire judgement of the High Court (10 MB) can be downloaded by clicking here

Respected Navdeep Sir,

The judgement is filled with legal jargon n terms.

may I request you to please eplain it in simple language. just the gist of it and whether is there any likelihood of the exam being conducted next year or this year for PC officers ?

Just a tit bit from net....

No one has been able to explain to me why young men and women serve in the Military for 20 years or more,risking their lives protecting your freedom, and only get 50% of their pay on retirement.

While Politicians hold their political positions in the safe confines of the capital,protected by these same men and women,and receive Full-Pay retirement after serving one term.

It just does not make any sense

2. when i approaced upsc through RTI , they did not reply satisfactorily.
3. what would be the fate of those 149 candidates , is there any legal course that can be taken?

sir, does it authorise army officers to appear for said exam next year and subsequent years?

Does AO 27/87 still come in between and army will impose restrictions on its officers again?

Pl elaborate major navdeep.
