A petition had been filed by one  Laxmilal Salvi before the HC challenging the requirement of providing ten Judgements before the main examination for the post of district judge by direct recruitment.

Petitioner had asserted that the condition was not a part of the recruitment process and therefore cannot be included in the notification.

The court found that recruitment and selection process terms are governed by Rajasthan Judicial Services rules of 2010 and part 2 of these deals with direct recruitment for the post of a district judge.

Court noted that Rule 36 (1) made it clear that candidates who are applying for the position have to submit certified copies of ten Judgements argued by candidates.

 Rule 36(1) While submitting the application, the candidate shall furnish particulars of 10 judgments of the preceding seven years. He shall produce the certified copies of such judgments before the Main Examination, as prescribed by the Recruiting Authority. The Candidate is required to provide particulars of final orders/judgments personally argued by him, not being interlocutory orders, bail orders, orders based on compromise or orders of withdrawal of case.”

Court noted that Rule 36 (1) was not challenged and therefore cannot be set aside. The divisional bench of Chief Justice Akil Kureshi, and Justice Rameshwar Vyas dismissed the petition with the note that the condition is within the statutory framework.

 Advocate Bharat Shrimali had appeared for the petitioner.
