Karnati Ravi vs Commissioner Survey Settlements and Land Records - Supreme Court Important Judgment 2017 -
On 20th July, 2017, in the case of Karnati Ravi & Anr. v. Commissioner Survey Settlements and Land Records & Ors. [Civil Appeal No.897 of 2010], the question for consideration was whether in the matter of selection and appointment, executive instructions pertaining to the procedure of selection, which are not prescribed under the Rules can rule the field. It was held that the Rules only provide the essential qualifications for the post and that the method of selection, in the absence of Rules, has to be supplied by the executive instructions. It was further held that in the absence of the Rules, it is well within the powers of the Executive under Article 162 of the Constitution to provide for the required instructions with regard to the procedure for selection, so long as they do not come in conflict with the Rules.
