A penalty of Rs 1 lakh was imposed on the officials to be paid to the petitioner as compensation. Advocate of the petitioner, Vigyan Shah said that following the PTI recruitment 2013, 132 candidates were selected in general quota had not joined the services. Among these 102 were from the other backward category who had made it to the general selection list on the basis of merit.

The petitioner’s advocate had submitted reference of previous high court orders in which it was clearly stated that general quota cannot be limited for candidates of general category only.
