Justice Mr. Senthilkumar Ramamoorthy, heard and allowed the matter petition in the case of C. Gopala Krishnan v. TNPSC and Ors.  

Facts of the case

Petitioner wrote his law exams in Tamil and hence mentioned the instruction medium as Tamil, on further enquiry it was found that the college does not offer any sanctioned law course in Tamil, only medium present being English. Hence the petitioner was not allowed to be eligible for further selection process of Civil Judge.

The 20% reservation allotment allowed persons who studied in Tamil Medium to write exams in Tamil on the condition that Applicants claiming this reservation must have studied the preferential qualifying course for the post in Tamil Medium and should have the certificate for the same.

The petitioner also contended that he never intended to take benefit of PTSM category and hence marked “NO” on the form asking such. But when the copy of the application form was downloaded, the said query and answer was absent.

Respondent contends that no such field exists on the form and is a false allegation without any proofs. Adding to that the petitioner also signed a declaration that he has prescribed education in Tamil medium and is aware of summarily rejection of certificate of no evidence was produced.   

Observation of Court
