The Supreme Court has reaffirmed that a daily rated employee must have been first appointed by a competent authority and that he must be employed in a sanctioned job in order to be eligible for regularization.
A Civil Appeal arising out of a Special Leave Petition filed against the decision of the division bench of the High Court of Madhya Pradesh was being heard by the bench of Justices Ravindra Bhat and Sudhanshu Dhulia.
In the contested order, the division bench of the High Court determined that the Appellant’s initial employment did not conform to the legal standard established by the Supreme Court in Secretary, State of Karnataka and Ors. V. Umadevi and Ors. (2006) 4 SCC 1. As a result, the Appellant’s employment could not be regularized.
