In the past there have been lots of allegations against the selecting authorities for making appointments to public posts throughout the country. The chiefs of Public Service Commission were put behind the bars and were caught with huge sums of money. Such selections in state of HP have also not remained out of controversies. One of the members of HPPSC was facing charges under Prevention of Corruption Act (who however was discharged after coming into power of Congress Government) and said appointment is under challenge in High Court of HP. The HPPSC was also found to have been conducting the selections solely on the basis of interviews for class III and IV posts, whereas the interviews had been abolished for these posts.
Accordingly, the PeRGo has filed a Writ Petition (PeRGo Versus State of H.P. & Others – CWP) in High Court of HP praying for conducting videography of the selection process on the basis of a judgment of Apex Court in a similar case.
