Don’t insist on domicile certificate, ONGC -Gujarat High Court

The Gujarat high court on 27/02/2020  Certificate of candidates for recruitment for the posts of technicians.
Various candidates residing outside Gujarat had approached the high court after they were disqualified on the ground that they had not supplied certificates showing that they were domiciled in Gujarat.
The petitioners came to know about this after they cleared the computer-based test and made it to the final merit list.
The candidates opposed ONGC’s decision to disqualify them saying that domicile certificate was not asked for in the advertisement issued in January 2019, and therefore ONGC cannot insist on this eligibility criterion.
After hearing the case, the high court allowed petitions filed by the candidates seeking directions to ONGC that it cannot insist on a domicile certificate at the belated stage of recruitment. The HC also directed the ONGC to add the names of these candidates in the final merit list.
