Following the recent suggestion of Law Ministry, the Government is going to stop campus recruitment by Banks as this process is completely against Supreme Court ruling and violates the constitution. The Ministry’s Department of Legal Affairs recently reaffirmed that “campus recruitment by PSUs in view of the decision of the High Court of Madras dated September 7, 2015 may be questioned as an unconstitutional way of recruitment to public employment” and may amount to “discrimination”. The recruitments were stopped after the High Court stayed the process following a petition in 2014 seeking a ban on PSUs opting for campus placement at premium or private colleges, thereby excluding students from government institutes.

It was subsequently resumed after the High Court in September 2015 declined to affirm the ban saying that the campus method was a “time tested” process in securing the “best talent” that was otherwise being weaned away by multinationals and private firms.

For the last 1-2 years, Banks have started selecting candidates from the campuses. The number of Public Sector Undertakings (PSUs) lining up to take part in Campus  placements has seen a sharp rise in the year 2016. Almost all major Top Academic institute like IITs have more than double the number of PSUs  both Maharatnas and Navratnas queued up to participate in the recruitment process. Later on ISRO, DRDO and Navy will also joined the process.

The Bombay Court said that the campus interview method violated the fundamental rights guaranteed under Article 14 (Equality before Law) and Article 16 (Equality of opportunities in matters of public employment) of the Constitution.

It said that such a method would also be unfair to citizens no longer pursuing education in any college or institution, much less the specified ones where the recruitment process was being conducted.
