The Supreme Court today issued a stay order on Tribhuvan University’s appointment process of 49 professors and 57 assistant professors in the open competition category.
In response to a Public Interest Litigation filed by advocate Sunil Ranjan Singh, a single bench of Justice Girish Chandra Lal issued the order to Tribhuvan University to stop the appointment process in the posts until the court reaches final decision.
Advocate Singh had filed the writ yesterday saying the appointment advertisement of Monday for those posts published by the university has breached the inclusive policy of the country and TU’s Law of Employees Terms of Service 2050.
The oldest university in the country had published an advertisement yesterday.
Tribhuvan University assembly had amended the law three years ago with the provision of 50 percent reservation for Women, Dalits, Indigenous groups and Madhesis and the remaining 50 percent for open competition after the country adopted the inclusive policy following the people’s movement II.
Earlier, the Supreme Court had given a verdict directing officials to adopt the policy of inclusion in the Public Service Commission on a Public Interest Litigation filed by Singh on the appointment at Nepal Sanskrit University in November 2010.
