The Supreme Court has intervened in the matter of the Calcutta High Court’s decision to annul the appointments of 25,753 teachers and non-teaching staff in West Bengal’s government-aided schools. The apex court has temporarily suspended the High Court’s order, allowing for further investigation into alleged irregularities. However, it has instructed the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) not to take coercive action against any individuals involved in the case.

Chief Justice of India (CJI) DY Chandrachud, along with Justices JB Pardiwala and Manoj Misra, presided over the Supreme Court bench that issued this stay. They have called for an expedited hearing scheduled for July 16.

The Supreme Court’s decision came in response to petitions challenging the High Court’s ruling, which the Mamata Banerjee-led Bengal government criticized as arbitrary.

In its ruling, the Supreme Court emphasized the need to distinguish between valid and invalid appointments rather than nullifying all appointments outright. It has tasked the Bengal government with determining the appropriate procedures for this segregation.

Furthermore, the court clarified that only individuals whose appointments are deemed invalid will be required to refund their salaries. This differs from the Calcutta High Court’s directive, which instructed all 25,000 affected individuals to return their entire salary with interest.

The Supreme Court has also affirmed the continuation of the CBI’s investigation, particularly regarding individuals appointed without proper selection procedures. However, it has instructed the investigative agency to refrain from taking coercive action against both candidates and government officials implicated in the case.
