‘Being Selected In a List Doesn’t Confer Any Vested Right’ Is a Settled Law: SC


In this case, a written-exam following a physical endurance and measurement process was conducted for posts of Constables of Delhi Police on November 16, 2014. After the revised result two of the selected candidates (Petitioners) were ousted and their Order of Appointments (OAs) reversed. However, Tribunal rejects their plea on May 05, 2016 and after dismissal of review petition on July 01, 2016 they moved to Delhi High Court where granting their OAs the Bench held that “The petition is accordingly allowed and we direct the respondents to appoint the petitioner to the post of Constable.”

Taking into consideration that High Court has mistaken the facts that respondents are deprived of their conferred appointment, the Apex Court relied upon Shankarsan Dash v. Union of India (1991) 3 SCC 47, and held that it is already a settled law that mere inclusion of candidate in selection list does not confer any vested right for the appointments. Concluding to the facts Bench noted that the respondents were failed to obtain marks above the revised cut-offs settled for OBC and hence their writ petitions approved by High Court has been dismissed.
