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.
