HYDERABAD: The Telangana High Court has made it clear that courts cannot be involved in the allocation process of employees between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana based on the employee's difficulties in looking after the family.
A division bench, comprising Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice A. Rajashekar Reddy noted that choosing an 'option' alone does not confer any mandatory right on an employee to be allocated to the preferred state.
The bench was dealing with a petition filed by civil assistant surgeon Dr Munagal Jyothi, challenging the Union government’s decision to allocate her to Andhra Pradesh.
She contended that her husband was a government doctor posted in Telangana state and they had a minor child. The court pointed out that she was appointed just few months before appointment day and as per the terms of execution instructions she comes under definition of local candidate in Andhra Pradesh, where she had studied from fourth class to 10th class and moreover, she had been selected in the said post in Zone -3 of the united Andhra Pradesh.
The court also pointed out that the petitioner had not raised any objection during the tentative allocations.
