In the matter of Public Employment, Equal Opportunities should be given: Madras High Court

MADRAS: In the case of Thanaseelvi Mary v. The Chairman & Managing Director TANGEDCO, The Madras High Court recently observed that in matters of public employment, equal opportunities should be granted and the recruitment authorities should give equal opportunities to all the candidates.

The single bench headed by Justice SM Subramaniam entertained petitions filed by persons who took part in the process of selection for appointment to the post of Field Assistant (Trainee) in 2016.

The petitioners were not appointed as they did not fall within the zone of consideration. The petitioners argued that Tamil Nadu Electricity Generation & Distribution Corporation (TANGEDCO) utilized persons appointed as Gangmen to perform the duties of the Field Assistant and that this has resulted in a lot of accidents as the Gangmen are not qualified to perform the duties in live electric wires.

The court also observed that if seen that the Gangmen were utilized to perform the duties of wiremen, electricians etc, the public institutions were expected to act in accordance with law. The court also observed that the petitioners were at liberty to participate in the recruitment process if any notification was issued to such extend.
