I was appointed as a laboratory technician on contract basis against a regular sanctioned post in a state government autonomous institute (University) as per the provisions of state contractual rules (framed in accordance to article 309). I have been selected by the executive council of the university through advertisement and the selection procedure was the same as used for selection of candidates on a regular basis. The rules related to category, etc. have also been duly followed.
Initially, I was appointed for a period of 11 months and upon renewal, I was appointed for a period of 1 year i.e. 12 months. I have completed more than 240 days of service in the appointment for 12 months. Also my nature of work is perennial i.e. I'm not in any project or temporary scheme of employment.
My query is that am I eligible for regularization as I am appointed against a regular sanctioned post. If so, what should I do? Should I approach the management/administration of the university and claim permanency or should I go to labor court.
One more crucial info I want to give and that is in the state contractual rules it is clearly mentioned that in ONLY contractual posts the recruitment should be done by means of public advertisement but I have been recruited in a regular sanctioned post? Does this makes the contract sham?
