Flipkart Deal of the Day

Interview result of RIMS director

RANCHI: The Jharkhand High Court on Tuesday asked the state government to furnish the interview results for the post director of Rajendra Institute
of Medical Science (RIMS) in sealed cover and asked its director NN Agarwal to furnish documents pertaining to his qualification.

Hearing a PIL filed by one Asim Kumar Samanta, the division bench comprising Chief Justice Gyan Sudha Misra and Justice DK Sinha asked the state to furnish the results of the interview conducted on Friday last.

The court on Friday stayed the publication of results of interview till further order. Twelve candidates have applied for the post of director of RIMS including incumbent director NN Agarwal and interviews were taken by the screening committee headed by development commissioner Sushil Kumar Chaudhary on Friday itself.

The petitioner has sought the court's directive to the state government to remove Agarwal from the post of director and not to re-appoint him as he did not have the requisite qualifications as mandated by the regulation of Medical Council of India (MCI).

The petitioner has submitted that as per the MCI guidelines, a candidate for the post of the director or dean or principal must possess a post graduate medical qualification from a recognized institution with a minimum of 10 years of teaching experience including five years of professorship.

Samanta has said in his petition that Agarwal has not served even for five years as a professor in any of the department of a medical college recognized by MCI and former health secretary in a letter on March 4, 2009 has sought action against him for financial irregularities.

Appearing for the state counsel, A Alam argued that Agarwal has necessary qualifications meant for the post of director of the medical institute, which are mentioned in his bio-data submitted at the court and the screening committee.

Counsel for petitioner Kalyan Roy contended that although Agarwal has submitted his bio-data but he has not submitted any relevant documents pertaining to his qualification mentioned in it.

The court observed that if Agarwal has been selected in the interview, then the court would examine the facts pertaining to his qualification but if he is not selected then the case could be nullified.

The court then adjourned the hearing of the case for September 3 asking the state to furnish the interview results and asked the RIMS director NN Agarwal to furnish the documents clarifying the details given in the bio-data. Source: The Times of India
