Chandigarh, September 11
In a major reprieve for sportspersons employed in the state, Haryana on Wednesday made clear its decision not to terminate the services of those failing to produce sports gradation certificate as required under a policy, at least for the time being.
As an appeal filed by Haryana came up for resumed hearing in the Punjab and Haryana High Court, Advocate-General BR Mahajan made a statement to this effect.
Appearing before the Division Bench of Chief Justice Krishna Murari and Justice Arun Palli, Mahajan stated: “The services of all those employees who got employment on the basis of their sports achievement shall not be terminated on the grounds of their failure to have produced sports gradation certificate under the new policy till October 31.”
Assisted by state counsel Deepak Balyan and Shruti Jain Goyal, Mahajan made it clear that his assertion “shall be made applicable to all such employees whether they are petitioners or appellants or not”.
Taking note of the statement, the Bench asserted that the issue regarding requirement of sports gradation certificate would be considered and adjudicated during the final hearing of the dispute. The case would now come up in the first week of October.
