HYDERABAD: In a relief to Telangana government, a division bench of the High Court on Wednesday vacated the stay on operation of GO 1274 which was issued in June for reserving all the teaching and non-teaching posts in the state residential schools for girls.The court’s order now paves the way for the state to go ahead with recruitment to teaching and non-teaching posts only with eligible women candidates in about 500 residential schools run by the social welfare, BC, ST and minority welfare departments of the state.
The bench passed these interim orders on a state government’s appeal against the order of a single judge who suspended operation of the GO.Sarasani Satyam Reddy, appearing for the petitioners, said the GO was issued for reserving for women all teaching and non-teaching posts in schools run under social welfare, BC, tribal and minority welfare residential educational institutions across the state. He sought dismissal of the appeal.
The bench said they had passed an order on Tuesday on recruitment of woman lecturers for government residential degree colleges for girls by vacating the stay on recruitment and they would pass a similar order in the present case also as the prima facie balance of convenience was in favour of the appellants (government).
The bench made it clear that the contentions raised by the petitioners would be considered during final hearing and any recruitment pursuant to the GO would be subject to the final verdict and posted the case to August 9 for final hearing.
