6th JPSC result row: Supreme Court sets aside Jharkhand HC order, jobs of 326 candidates safe

Ranchi: The Supreme Court on Thursday set aside the order of the Jharkhand High Court related to the 6th JPSC Combined Civil Services Competitive Examination.

The order paved the path for the protection of jobs of 326 candidates selected on the basis of the first result published by the recruitment agency. JPSC lawyer Sanjay Peparwal confirmed the development.

Jharkhand High Court had cancelled the merit list and recommendation of the sixth JPSC and invalidated the appointment of 326 recommended candidates. Later, the division bench of the High Court also upheld the order of the single bench and directed JPSC to issue a revised merit list.

In its order the apex court set aside both the orders, Peparwal said The order came in a Special Leave Petition (SLP) filed by Faizan Sarwar, Varun Kumar and 58 others who had lost their government job after JPSC issued a revised merit list following a high court order.
