Deputy Superintendent of Police,
Assistant Commissioner of Sales Tax,
Block Development Officer,
Superintendent (Excise), and various other posts.
Reason Behind Delay:
According to media reports, one of the candidates from a reserved category, Charusheela Chaudhari, moved the High Court before the interviews could take place. She claimed that she deserved a seat in the ‘open, female’ quota as she had scored enough to make it to that list on merit.
A bench comprising Justice R M Borde and Justice K K Sonawane, citing three judgments delivered by the division bench of Bombay High Court, allowed her to be considered in the ‘open, female’ quota on July 12, 2018.
Although the court has delivered its final judgement on August 8, 2018, the Maharashtra Public Service Commission has not yet acted on the court’s directive and informed the candidates about their joining dates.
