Bring file on selection process for NCPCR: HC to Centre

New Delhi, Feb 13 (PTI) The Delhi High Court today told the Centre it wants to see the file relating to the selection process for vacancies in the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights, which is functioning below its full capacity for the past two years.

A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar directed the Secretary of the Ministry of Women and Child Development to ensure that the file is produced before the court on the next date of hearing on February 19.

The court called for the information after observing that the ministry had given no reasons for not filling up the three vacancies, existing for more than two years, in the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR).

It also noted that no explanation has been given for “abandoning” an earlier selection process, carried out at the expense of the public exchequer, and initiating a fresh one.
