Meher Fatima Hussain vs Jamia Milia Islamia 2024 INSC 303 – UGC – University Appointments

Summary: Allowing an appeal, SC observed: Considering that appellants were appointed after undergoing a regular selection process and they possess relevant qualifications as per the norms of UGC, they should have been continued on the posts merged with the regular establishment of the University instead of adopting the fresh selection procedure. In the facts of this case, the University’s action of not continuing them and starting a fresh selection process is unjust, arbitrary and violative of Article 14 of the Constitution of India. Therefore, the employment of the appellants will have to be continued after merger- by setting aside the impugned judgments, we direct to reinstate the appellants in their respective posts based on their selection in December 2016.
