A Division Bench of justices Vinod Chatterji Koul and Sindhu Sharma also issued notice to the other side to be returned within four weeks.

“Meanwhile, appellant (JKSSB) shall proceed with the selection process of Junior Engineer (Jal Shakti Department) and Sub-Inspector (Home Department), however, the result of the same shall await further orders from this court,” the court said in an order.
