In the affidavits exchanged between the parties, the Union of India has taken a specific stand that those persons who were appointed as direct recruit prior to 1st March, 1986 have not been placed junior to the persons who were appointed after 1st March, 1986 and, therefore, there is no question of any inconvenience being caused to the respondents herein. Learned Additional Solicitor General further submitted that there was no discrimination in respect of direct recruit and promotees prior to 1st March, 1986 and 3 we therefore allow the petitioner to conduct DPC and promote persons appointed as direct recruits and promotees as per existing seniority list as Assistant Commissioner on ad hoc basis subject to the outcome of these special leave petitions. I.A.No.43751/2018 is accordingly disposed of. List these special leave petitions for final disposal in the first week of August, 2018 on a Nonmiscellaneous day.
