CHANDIGARH: The Punjab and Haryana high court on Tuesday stayed the result declared by the Haryana government for posts of 9,000 junior basic teachers (JBTs) selected on the advertisem­ent issued in 2012.

The high court bench of justice Amit Rawal order came on a bunch of petitions filed by those candidates who were in the category of waiting list as per a previous list prepared by the government.

In the result declared recently, there are over 1,000 such candidates who qualified mandatory Haryana teachers eligibilit­y test (HTET) for the post in 2013, were considered.

The petitioner­s have submitted that they were in the waiting list and had been waiting for over one year now for the postings but those who were not even eligible at the time of December 2012 advertisem­ent, had been declared selected.
