Over two months after she approached the Bombay High Court after being found short of the required height in the Mumbai Police recruitment, an Amravati based woman lost her appeal last week. The HC decided not to interfere after she was found to have failed in her written test. The aspiring constable recruit has now decided to appeal to the High Court to bring changes in the recruitment procedure.
The aspirant had appeared for the recruitment in June but was found to be 154.8 cms, just short of the requirement of 155 cms. She claimed to possess a certificate from Amravati Civil Hospital which stated that she was 156 cms tall. The police measured her once more and found her to be 154.2 cms. Undeterred, she approached the Bombay High Court, which ordered a medical board of JJ Hospital to measure her. The board too, found her not meeting the required height. The woman then had her height checked at three civic run hospitals in Mumbai, each of which found her to be less than 155 cms high.
The HC had however, permitted her to attempt the physical and written examinations, and ordered the police to not disclose the results of the latter. While the aspirant passed the former, she was found to have secured 115 as against a minimum of 150 marks in her written test.

“I could not prepare properly for the written test as I spent a lot of time fighting the legal battle. Also, I did not have a place to stay in Mumbai and lived on railway stations,” she said.
Last Thursday, a bench of Justices S. J. Vazifdar and Revati Mohite Dere sought not to interfere after the marks were disclosed.
“I am consulting my lawyer about the next step. But I will appeal to the HC to bring about changes in the recruitment procedure,” she said.
