All flunk test for district judges’ posts in Odisha
Cuttack: Not a single candidate has qualified in the limited competitive examination, 2019, held by the Orissa high court to fill up 14 vacant district judges’ posts.
The results are significant as the exam was taken by judicial officers, who have completed five years of service.
To add to the HC’s predicament, only two candidates qualified in another competitive examination held to fill up eight district judges’ posts through direct recruitment from the Bar. Candidates taking this exam had to have at least seven years of experience. Thus, only two candidates have been recommended for appointment as district judges as against 22 vacancies.
