Justice R Mahadevan gave the direction in a recent order, dismissing a batch of petitions filed by several candidates seeking appointment to the posts. The candidates approached the court after the bank rejected their applications stating that it would not appoint anyone directly based on applications without notifying the vacancies and calling for applications through public advertisement.

The judge noted that the main grievance of the petitioners was that there are no rules and regulations for recruitment to the post of sub-staff in the Indian Bank. He also took note of the RTI report, cited by the petitioners, that revealed that rules and regulations for the said recruitment are formulated as and when the recruitment takes place.

The standing counsel for the bank also did not produce any material related to the rules followed by the bank for the recruitment, apart from stating that the petitioners cannot straight away approach the bank for appointment as there is a procedure for selection to any post, the judge underlined.
