Delhi Judicial Service Exam: Sluggishness On The Part Of The Delhi HC

By LawStreet News Network      13 December, 2017 04:05 AM      0 Comments

A petition filed in the Supreme Court by the DJS aspirants in September this year has revealed the severe delays in conducting the Delhi Judicial Service Examinations.

The petition is filed to challenge the entire selection process and evaluation method adopted in the Main (written) Examination of Delhi Judicial Service, 2015 on the grounds of being unreasonable and arbitrary.

It cites the result of DJSE-2014 wherein, out of 9000 students, who gave the preliminary examination, only 15 students were selected for the DJS.

The result of 2015 is even more astonishing; the preliminary examination was conducted in December wherein, 8534 students appeared. The result of the exam was declared in the month on February and 914 were selected for the Mains. The results for the Main examination were declared in July 2017, after a delay of almost one year and wherein, only 63 candidates were selected for the oral interview for the total 100 vacant posts of Judicial Officers in Delhi.

As per Rule 13 of the Delhi Judicial Services Rules, 1970 Recruitment after the initial recruitment shall be made on the basis of a competitive examination to be held by the High Court in Delhi, preferably twice a year, subject to vacancy position. But in the present scenario DJSE is held after almost every 3 years, looking into the fact that there is a substantial backlog of vacancies in the Delhi State, and following with even more backlog of cases this clearly shows the inaction on the part of the Delhi High Court creating an alarming situation of justice delayed is justice denied.
