Taking serious note of adhoc appointments in the state, the Himachal High Court has ordered the government not to make any further appointment on adhoc or temporary basis. The division bench comprising Chief Justice Kurian Joseph and Justice Rajiv Sharma directed that any appointment, if required, shall be made only in terms of applicable Recruitment & Promotion Rules.

The orders were passed on a petition by one Pankaj Kumar alleging ‘adhocism’ prevalent in the state and appointments being made on the basis of some vague memos, instructions and directions of the government. The petitioner prayed before the court to direct the government not to continue with temporary appointments and to quash the policies, schemes, circulars, instructions, directions and grant-in-aid rules in this regard.
