SHILLONG: In what can be termed as good news for candidates who could not fulfill the qualifying criteria for the post of judicial officers, the State Cabinet on Wednesday approved the Meghalaya judicial service amendment rules 2013.
The Cabinet decided to amend the rules in view of the constraints faced by the candidates applying for the post of judicial officers.
Talking to media persons after the meeting, Chief Minister Dr Mukul Sangma informed that the Government made efforts to recruit judicial officers for grade I and II but the candidates had to face a lot of hardship due to the qualifying criteria.
The amended rules will empower the Chief Justice of the High Court to provide relaxation on qualification parameters to the candidates while applying for the post of judicial officers.
“This Rules will allow relaxation as may be felt by the Chief Justice,” Chief Minister added.
The Rules will be placed before the Assembly in its next sitting for the approval of the house.
