Dear Dr. Vineet, Regularization of any ad-hoc or contractual employee is not unconstitutional. In fact continuing with contractual appointment beyond a reasonable time is unconstitutional.
The 5-judge bench of Supreme Court of India in Uma Devi Vs. Govt. of Karnataka cae however did not grant regularization as a matter of right to the contractual employees since their service conditions are governed by the terms of their contract and not by the rules of government service.
This is what we interpret after talking to our legal adviser but it is advisable that the affected or aggrieved individuals seek legal advice as court also gave some relaxation at the time of commencement of a new service. This is how octors were regularized in DHS.
PS: This is just one view and we do not claim this to be final legal view on the matter.
Is recruitment by regularisation of contractual doctors against the constitution? Especially if cadre has been formed and the R&R's are notified?
