The Allahabad High Court, in the case of Ram Krishna In 880(Spla)2013 Vs. State of UP Through Secretary Vocational & Technical Education Lucknow & Ors, has noted that a writ petition under Article 226 of the Constitution to regularise an illegal appointment will not stand the test of law.

Appointments to public posts have to be made in accordance with the rules formulated by the competent authority and backdoor entries to public posts cannot be permitted.

It was the case of the appellant, an instructor employed with the UP state government, that he was entitled for regularisation of his service.

However, the appellant did not have the requisite minimum eligibility criteria and experience.

The writ petition for regularisation of service was allowed by the Allahabad High Court. The state preferred an appeal against this judgment and the matter was decided against the appellant. Aggrieved, the appellant filed a review petition.
