Promotions in Jail department

A two judge panel of the Telangana High Court comprising of Chief Justice Satish Chandra Sharma and Justice A Rajasheker Reddy on Wednesday struck down the relevant rule on promotion of lady deputy superintendents to the post of jail superintendents. The panel effectively allowed a writ petition filed by T Venkatalakshmi Srinadh currently working as deputy superintendent of Warangal’s central prison. She challenged the AP Jail Services Rules, which are also applicable to the state of Telangana. The rules provide for the promotion from the post of deputy superintendent to superintendent. However, the rules provided for promotion of deputy superintendents male to the post of the superintendent. Senior Counsel G Vidya Sagar who appeared for the petitioner pointed out that empowering only men from the same feeder category was in violation of the equality clause under Article 16 of the constitution of India. The court not only directed that her case be considered but also allowances and arrears for the two years of service she provided were also ordered to be paid.
