All flunk test for district judges’ posts in Odisha

The Times of India (New Delhi edition) - - Times City - Lal­mo­han Pat­naik

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.
