For the last few days, a lot of speculations have been made around a news stating that Madurai Bench of Madras High Court has Cancelled the recruitment project of SBI. Friends, we would like to say that yes, a case has been registered but no such order is passed since now. You should continue your preparation as planned. Justices R Mahadevan and S S Sundar also sought the Centre's explanation within two weeks on the PIL filed by S Gurukrishna Gokul, an aspirant.
News published by Economic Times stated that the case is registered on one clause introduced in the notification published. This clause has barred all those students who have not repaied the education loan or have a bad credit history. It seems absurd from student's point of view but the bank has its own logics. S Gurukrishna Gokul filed the PIL (Public Interest Litigation) seeking to quash the current recruitment project and issue a new notification which will allow the defaulters to appear for the exam.
Besides, the application for the posts had been invited only by online registration without giving wide advertisements in newspapers, which is against the dictum of the Supreme Court, he submitted. While a major chunk of poor students were searching for jobs in government and public sector units, the ineligibility condition prevented poor students from applying for the examination, he submitted The petitioner also sought a direction to the Chairman of SBI, Central Recruitment and Promotion Department, to issue a fresh notification so as to enable a large number of candidates to apply for the posts.
Friends, let us not get distracted and let us continue with what we can. These things will continue and any update regarding the same will definitely be updated on Bankersadda.
