Decided on September 12,2018

Gitanjali Talukdar Choudhury Appellant
State Of Assam And 4 Ors Respondents


Nelson Sailo, J. - (1.) Heard Mr. SK Das, the learned counsel for the petitioner and Mr. N Goswami, the learned State counsel for the respondent Nos. 1 to 4. Also heard Ms. N Nasreen, the learned counsel for the respondent No.5.
(2.) The respondent No.4 has filed an affidavit-in-opposition on 28.07.2016, while the respondent No.5 has not filed any affidavit till date. Ms. N Nasreen, the learned counsel submits that despite all efforts, the respondent No.5 has failed to make any communication to her and therefore the affidavit-in-opposition could not be filed. Be that as it may, considering the nature of the controversy, this Court proposes to dispose of the writ petition at this stage with the consent of the parties.
(3.) Case of the writ petitioner in brief is that pursuant to an Advertisement issued by the respondent No.4 on 08.11.2012, the petitioner participated in the selection process held on 18.12.2013 for the posts of Mini Anganwadi Worker in 53 No. Subha Hindu Supa Mini Anganwadi Centre. Despite the selection held in the year 2012, no merit list was published by the respondent authorities and when the petitioner enquired about the merit list, she was informed that a fresh selection was going to be done. However, to her surprise, she came to learn that by manipulating the draft merit list, the petitioner was substituted with the respondent No.5 and thereafter, the same was sent for approval of the Director of Social Welfare. The petitioner also came to learn that in the selection process, she was placed at the first position while the respondent No.5 was placed in the second position. Despite the same, the respondent No.5 was appointed as Mini Anganwadi Worker against the Centre concerned. The petitioner being aggrieved filed several applications under the Right to Information Act, for the marks given to the respective candidates and information about the family survey of the Mini Anganwadi Centre area.;
