SBI News – What is the actual matter?
Let’s know the case more clearly and deeply. An aspirant whose name is S Gurukrishna Gokul has filed a PIL against the SBI in the Madras court on May 25 for restricting loan defaulters to apply for this job. This recruitment was announced by the SBI in March and only eligible candidates can apply for this job. In the eligibility clauses, there is an additional clause regarding loan payment i.e. the candidates with a record of default in loan payment are not eligible to apply and this clause is now being questioned.
S Gurukrishna has stated in his petition that instead of providing employment for the candidates to make them repay loans, the bank is creating more educational loan defaulters by giving this unreasonable eligibility condition. He also stated that the major chunks of poor students looked for the jobs in the public and government sector, the ineligibility condition prevented them from applying for the examination.
As per the latest SBI News, the petition also sought the court to direct the chairman of SBI to issue a fresh notification so that a large number of candidates can apply.
In response to his petition, justice R Mahadevan and SS Sundar sought the center’s explanation regarding this PIL within two weeks.
SBI Clerk Recruitment 2016 Cancelled (?) or Not – What Next?
Now, there is a big question in everyone’s mind that Will SBI recruitment be cancelled or is there any other twist about to come in this case.
It is interesting to see that what the SBI and union government have to say on this PIL, but it is important that their defense should be strong enough to convince the court as it is the matter of employment and dreams of a large number of aspirants.
Two possible outcomes are associated with this latest SBI News:
- If SBI succeeds to convince the court then no matter left with it and the process will continue on the track as it started and there will be no cancellation
- But if SBI fails to convince the court and the bench finds any fault in SBI then what happens? With this, another two outcomes are possible. First, it may be possible that the court will cancel out all this recruitment procedure. Second, this is also possible that SBI will release a fresh notification and start the registration process again.
Now the time will tell what will be the final outcome and is this petition would be beneficial for the loan defaulters. Stay connected with us as we will update the case status regularly.
