- 50. In view of the statutory provisions as mentioned above, our considered opinion is that before allocation of budget for payment of salaries of the appointees against newly created posts, there was no scope to appoint any one in any post created newly.
- 51. The University Inquiry Report shows that from 17.11.2003 to 04.01.2009 333 persons were appointed on adhoc basis. Out of them 161 appointees joined in their respective posts on the date of their appointments and 131 appointees joined in their respective posts on the next date of getting their appointments. The petitioners also brought similar allegations. The respondents did not controvert that facts. Such acts of the V.C. clearly indicated that those 161 persons met the V.C. and approached him and then got them appointed and had joined on the same day and those 131 persons joined on the next day and thereafter within one or two months services of almost all of them were regularized. These are the manners of exercising administrative discretion. Every power must be exercised by the authority lawfully, reasonably and good faith. If the power is exercised unlawfully, improperly, unreasonably or in bad faith, the exercise is bad and the action is illegal. In the case of State of Madhya Pradesh Vs. Nandalal, reported in AIR 1987 S.C. page-251 Indian Supreme Court held that two important factors will throw conside-rable light in determining whether a decision is malafide or motivated by improper consider-ation: (i) the manner or method of reaching the decision; and (ii) the circumst-ances in which the decision is taken and the considerations which have entered into in reaching the decision. Elements of those two factors are present in the processes of appointments of the employees within the questioned period.
- 52. The learned Advocates for the respond-ents submit that the Vice Chancellor of the University is legally authorized to appoint any person under section 12(10) of the Act on its discretion and only the control is that after so appointment he would intimate the same to the Syndicate. But the power of the Vice Chance-llor is not unguided and uncontrolled in view of the provision of section 12(3) of the Act which provided, “fvBm-P¨v‡Ýji GB AvBb, mswewa Ges wek¡we`¨vjq †iMy‡jk‡bi weavb wek¡¯ZZvi mwnZ cvj‡bi wbðqZv weavb Kwi‡eb Ges GB D‡Ï‡k¨ cª‡qvRbxq ¶gZv cª‡qvM Kwi‡Z cvwi‡eb |” That is, he must appoint any one in the University exercising power under section 12(10) in accordance with law, statute and regulation of the University. He is not empowered to appoint any person in contravention of the Act and Statute. The aforesaid appointments of 161 persons in one day and joining of those appointees on the same day and 131 persons on the next day of getting their appointments are nothing but arbitrary exercise of administrative discretion and those appointments were tainted with fraud. He did not stop here. Even after publication of notice of regular employment on 05.01.2004 the V.C. started to appoint employees on adhoc basis again when the process of regular appointment was going on. Till next advertisement on 11.09.2004 he appointed 194 persons more on ad-hoc basis. If the act is in excess of the power granted or is an abuse or misuse of power, the matter may be subjected to judicial review.
- 53. From Annexure-2 to the affidavit-in-opposition filed by the respondent No.5 and others shows that Post Creation Committee in a meeting held on 27.10.2003 prepared a proposal for creation of 836 posts. From Annexure-7 to the supplementary affidavit-in- opposition filed by the University on 31.01.2012 it appears that for holding syndicate meeting dated 05.11.2003 notice was issued on 03.11.2003 for consideration of 11 agendas. Out of those agendas agenda no.3 was in respect of proposal for creation few posts of Professor and Associate Professor and agenda No.4 was in respect of creation of two posts for Director and Deputy Director (Public relation and Publication). On 04.11.2003 agenda Nos.13 to 19 were incorporated by a supple-mentary notification wherein agenda No.15 was for creation of new posts. Said agenda was as follows:

- 54. In affidavit-in-opposition the added respondents No.283 and others stated that Post Creation Committee recommended for creation of 1255 posts from 27.10.2003 to 16.03.2005 out of them recommendation was made for creation of 938 posts by a resolution dated 27.10.2003. But from the agenda of the notification for holding Syndicate meeting as quoted above shows that in that notification there was proposal for creation of 210 posts of officers and staffs for consideration. Annexure-7 (1) of the supplementary affidavit of the University shows that the Syndicate in its meeting dated 05.11.2003 created 938 posts in different categories. While creating those posts the Syndicate amended the Statute 6 for appointing some persons in “few posts” directly inasmuch as there was no agenda in the notice for amendment of the Statute. Statute provided that those “few posts” should be filled up by way of promotion. It is relevant here to quote the said amendment which runs as follows: wm×vš— -15 (ii) 9500 -1200/- UvKv †eZb †¯‹‡j Dc- †iwRóvi Gi 6wU Dc- K‡jR cwi`k©K 6wU, Dc- cix¶v wbqš¿K 6wU Ges Dc- cwiPvjK (A_© I wnmve) Gi 2wU c` m„wó Kiv nj| RvZxq wek¡we`¨vjq PvKzix mswewa (mswewea-6) Gi Zckxj wewagvjv 3(18) Gi G“wgK 13 G ewb©Z weavb ms‡kvabc~e©K G mKj c‡` mivmwi †jvK wb‡qv‡Mi wm×vš— M„nxZ n‡jv| Dc- †iwRóªvi/ mggv‡bi c‡` wb‡qv‡Mi †¶‡Î †hvM¨Zv I AwfÁZv n‡e wbg¥i“ct-

- 55. Most curious aspect is that University annexed annexure-7(2) another copy of the minutes of the 63rd Syndicate meeting held on 05.11.2003. In that minutes the above quoted portion of resolution regarding amendment of Statute does not appear. The statement of the University, the highest institution and contro-lling authority of the higher educational institutions in this regard is very shocking. In supplementary affidavit-in-opposition dated 31.01.2012 the University stated as follows:
“That so far as minutes of 63rd Syndicate meeting held on 05.11.2003 is concerned it appears from amended agenda of the 63rd Syndicate dated 03.1.2003 and supplementary agenda dated 04.11.2003, as found in the file, that the number of agenda was 19 and report was 7. However, in the concerned file two versions of minutes of 63rd Syndicate were found one containing initial of the then Vice- Chancellor at each page with the word “Aby‡gvw`ZÓ at the last page. Subsequently the other version was found containing initials of the then Registrar and Deputy Registrar. The matter was discussed in the 116th Syndicate meeting held on 20.3.2010. In the meeting it was decided that the minutes of 63rd Syndicate containing initials of Registrar and Deputy Registrar would be treated as correct version. A. G.D. dated 25.3.2010 was lodged with Joydevpur P.S., Gazipur by the National University regarding aforesaid matter”.
- 56. That it appears that under agenda no.15 in the notice 5 catagories posts had been mentioned for taking decision whether those posts should be created or not (Annexure-7). But in the minutes containing initial of the then Vice- Chancellor under the said agenda decision was taken for creation of 29 catagories of posts (Annexure- 7-1). In the minutes containing initial of the Registrar and Deputy Registrar under agenda No.15 there were decision for creation of 18 catagories posts ( annexure- 7-2).
- 57. In annexure-7(1), the minutes of the 63rd meeting there is no signature of the Registrar who is Secretary of National University Syndicate and in Annexure-7(2) signature of the V.C. does not appear but signature of Registrar is there. Annexure 7(1) shows that the Syndicate in 63rd meeting created 29 catagories of posts but 7(2) shows that in that meeting 18 categories posts were created. Those posts were created on the basis of amended Statute 6 (before creation of those posts last amended Statute was published after approval of Senate on 17.10.2002). At the time of creation of posts on 05.11.2003 there were no such posts namely, Superintending Engineer, Chief Security Officer, Assistant Officer, Upper Division Assistant (Technical), Lower Division Assistant (Technical) Senior Staff Photographer etc. In the notification for holding 63rd Syndicate Meeting Agenda No.5 was to the effect – ÒRvZxq wek¡we`¨vj‡qi PvKzix mswewai wewfbœ Am½wZ wPwn“Z K‡i I wel‡q Kibxq m¤ú‡K© cª‡qvRbxq mycvwik cªbq‡bi Rb¨ GKwU KwgwU MV‡bi cª¯—ve we‡ePbvÓ. In Syndicate meeting a committee for preparation of proposal for amendment of Statute was constituted. But without waiting for report of that Committee the Syndicate, for the purpose of appointment for some persons, amended the Statute-6 and appointed some persons accordingly before approval of those amendments by the Senate inasmuch as section 45(4) of the Act says – “45(4) wmwÛ‡KU KZ…©K cª¯—vweZ mswewa wm‡bU KZ…©K Aby‡gvw`Z ev Abby‡gvw`Z ewjqv MY¨ bv nIqv ch©š— Dnvi †Kvb Kvh©KvwZv _vwK‡e bv| and Section 21 (K) says : GB AvBb I AW©vi Gi weavb mv‡c‡¶ wm‡bU-
(K) wmwÛ‡KU KZ…©K cª¯—vweZ mswewa Aby‡gv`b ms‡kvab I evwZj Kwi‡Z cvwi‡e|” Section 24 provides the power of the Syndicate 24 (2) (V) says- “wm‡b‡Ui Gi Aby‡gv`b mv‡c‡¶ mswewa cªbqb, ms‡kvab IevwZj Kwi‡Z cvwi‡e;” In order to amend the Statute approval of the Senate is required to be taken. From some other minutes of Syndicate show that the Syndicate amended the schedule of the Statute. University enforced those amendments before approval of the Senate. On the basis of those amendments many appointments were given.
- 58. It is relevant here to state that one Hafizur Rahman as informant lodged an F.I.R. with Sahabag Police Station under Sections 420/ 467/468/ 471/109 of the Penal Code. After holding investigation police submitted charge-sheet against Prof. Aftab Ahmed (now deceased) and others under sections 420; 467;468/471/109 of the Penal Code finding prima-facie case against them. In police report the Investigating Officer has said,- “RvZxq wek¡we`¨vj‡qi ZrKvjxb cªkvm‡b wb‡qvwRZ AwfhyI“ Avmvgxiv ci¯ci †hvMmvRv‡bv cªZviYvg~jKfv‡e RvZxq wek¡we`¨vjq Õ1992 37bs) AvB‡bi 6(U), 24(2) (T) I 45(4) aviv Ges RvZxq wek¡we`¨vj‡qi PvKzix (mswewa-6) Gi 97 aviv jsNb Kwiqv ixU gvgjvq Annexure-6, 6A, 6B, 6C and 6D (The minutes of the meeting of post creation Committee dated 27.10.2003, 29.3.2004, 03.7.2004, 31.08.2004 and 14.10.-2004 respectively) wnmv‡e Rgv ‡`qv c` m„wói Rvj WKz‡g›U mg~n cwiKwíZ fv‡e ˆZix K‡i‡Qb| RvZxq wek¡we`¨vj‡qi 2003-4, 2004-5 A_© erm‡ii ev‡R‡U c` m„wói Lv‡Z †Kvb eivÏ wQj bv Ges c` m„wói WKz‡g›Um Rvj wm‡bU KZ…©K Aby‡gvw`Z b‡n|” That observation of the Investigating Officer is not conclusive and matter is still subjudice but I.O. prima-facie finding so has made such observation. There cannot be an appointment or employ-ment without pre-existing posts.

- 60. From the aforesaid advertisement it appears that the University had not said anything regarding the provisions of Rule 4, 97 (2) and 99 of the Statute-6. The number of posts had not been mentioned against each of the categories of the posts. In the advertisement it is said- Ò‡Kvb c‡`i wecix‡Z AwaK msL¨K cªv_x© _vK‡j wek¡we`¨vjq KZ…©c¶ cª‡qvR‡b cªv_x©‡`i wjwLZ cix¶vI Mªnb Ki‡Z cv‡i|Ó Few thousand applicants filed applications for employment but no written examination was held.

The respondent University in para 18 of the Supplementary Affdidavit-in-Opposition dated 19.1.2012 admitted the allegation, inter alia, stating, “Advertisment Published in Daily Sangbad on 05.01.2004 was not a proper advertisement”. In view of such admission of the respondent No.2 University it is difficult for this court to hold that the appointments made on the basis of such improper advertisement are legal appoint-ments. The procedure adopted by the Univer-sity suffers from the vice of arbitrariness.
- 62. In the first affidavit-in-opposition filed by the respondent No. 2 it is seen that the advertisement published on 11th September 2004 in “The Dainik Ajkaler Khabor” inviting applications for appointment in the different posts under the University but “The Dainik Ajkaler Khabor” is not the widely circulated national daily. The said newspapers is not the listed news paper of the University for publication of advertisement. The respondent No. 2 annexed a copy of the advertisement published in the “Daily Independent” of its 15.9.2004 issue. The petitioner by supplemen-tary affidavit stated that the advertisement published in “The Daily Independent” on 15.09.2004 as shown by the respondent No. 2 is fictitious one. Mr. Rehanuddin, a learned Advocate of the Supreme Court Bar Associ-ation, wrote a letter addressing the Managing Director of “The Daily Independent” for getting information to ascertain the genuine-ness of the said publication of employment notification dated 15.09.2004. The Managing Director of “The Daily Independent” replied that no such employment notice was printed and published on 15.9.2004. The National University by a letter dated 8.5.2008 informed the Officer-in-charge of Joydevpur Police Station that no such employment notice was published in “The Daily Independent” on 15.9.2004 at the instance of the University. But appointments had been given on the basis of the said fake advertisement allegedly published in “The Daily Independent”. Accordingly a criminal case being Joydevpur P.S. Case No. 84 dated 16.4.2008 was instituted against some officials of the said University who were ultimately charge-sheeted on 23.9.2008 under sections 420/466/467/468/471 and 109 of the Penal Code (Annexures – E and E-1 to the supplementary affidavit to the writ petition). The Bangladesh Press Institute also issued similar reply on query and intimated by letters dated 12.2.2007, 5.9.2007 and 2.6.2008 stating that on 15.9.2004 no such advertisement was published in ‘The Daily Independent” (Annexure-F series). Similar information was given by the Director of the Directorate of Archives and Libraries on 27.8.2007 and 26.5.2008 that no such advertisement was published in “The Daily Independent” on that date, i.e., on 15.9.2004 (Annexure – G series).
- 63. In supplementary affidavit filed by the petitioners it has been stated that earlier the respondent No. 2, the NationalUniversity, producing the advertisement published in “The Daily Independent”, swore an affidavit in this Court in support of their case and claimed that the said notification was genuine one. After holding enquiry it was detected that the same was forged one. Accordingly FIR was lodged by one Hafizur Rahman, a Lecturer of National University with Shahbag Police Station under sections 420/467/468/401 of the Penal Code. After holding investigation, police also submitted charge sheet finding prima facie that those papers were forged. In the said charge sheet the Investigating Officer also found prima-facie that the Annexure – 6, 6-A, 6-B, 6-C, 6-D and Annexures –C, C-A, C-B, 9, 9-A, 9-B, 9-C, 9-D, Annexures- 13, 10, 10-A, 10-B, 14-a, 14-B, 16 and 16-B, the papers relating to creation of those posts and approval by the Syndicate are forged. The NationalUniversity by its affidavit-in-opposition filed on 19.1.12 and 13.1.12 admitted that the employment notification shown to be published in “The Daily Independent” on 15.9.2004 was fictitious one. No money was sanctioned for payment of the bill for publication for that notification. The University constituted high-power Enquiry Committee who inquired the illegalities and irregularities in the processes of appointments made within the period as mentioned above. In its affidavit-in-opposition the University quoted some portions of the inquiry report by which the University in fact admitted the case of the petitioners.
- 64. The learned Advocates for the respondents, however, challenging the propriety of the enquiry report submit that at the time of holding the said inquiry the added respondents were not given the opportunity of being heard, so the same cannot be relied upon. They submit that due to change of the administration and the officials of the NationalUniversity, the University changed its position as they had taken in their affidavit-in-opposition filed on 27.06.2006. Subsequent deviation of the University from their original stand is nothing but the result of the change of the Government and the administration of the University. But we do not find satisfactory acceptable reply from the added respondents against the allegations brought in picture in this case.
- 65. Our constitutional scheme envisages employment by the Government and its instr-umentalities on the basis of a procedure established in that behalf. Equality of oppor-tunity is the hallmark, and the constitution has provided also for affirmative action to ensure that unequal are not treated as equals. Thus any public employment has to be in terms of the constitutional scheme. National University has framed rules in exercise of its power conferred upon it by the Act. Rules provides for a complete code as regards the mode and manner in which appointments were required to be made and the process of appointments is required to be followed. No appointment can be made in deviation of or departure from the procedure laid down in the Statutes. In the case of State of Himachal Prodesh Vs. Suresh Kumer Verma reported in (1994) 2 S.C.C. page-204 the Supreme Court of India held, “It is now well settled that an appointment made in violation of the mandatory provisions of the statute and in particular, ignoring the minimum educational qualification and other essential qualification would be wholly illegal. Such illegality cannot be cured by taking recourse to regularization”. The submission of Mr. Rafiqul Haque and Mr. Rokonuddin Mahmud the learned Senior Advocates in respect of giving opportunity of the added respondents of being heard issuing notice individually we find reply of such submission in similar circumstances in the case of Biswa Ranjan Saha and others Vs. Sushanta Kumar Duinda and others reported in AIR 1996 S.C. page 2552 wherein it was held by the Supreme Court of India, “A persusal thereof would indicate the enormity of mal-practice in the selection process. The question, therefore, is whether the principle of natural justice is required to be followed by issuing notice to the selected persons and hearing them. It is true, as contended by Santosh Hedge, learned Senior Counsel appearing for the petitioners, that in the case of selection of an individual his selection is not found correct in accordance with law, necessarily a notice is required to be issued and opportunity be given. In a case like mass mal-practice as got by the Tribunal, as extracted herein before, the question emerges; whether the notice was required to be issued to the persons affected and whether they needed to be heard? Nothing would become fruitful by issuance of notice. Fabrication would obviously either be not known or no one would come forward to hear the brunt, under under these circumstances the Tribunal was right in not issuing notice to the petitioners who are said to have been selected and given selection and appointment.”
- 66. Article 29 of the Constitution allowed the State to make special provision in favour of any backward section of citizen for the purpose of securing their adequate representation in the service of the republic and to give effect of law reserving appointments relation to denomin-ation and to reserve for members of one class in employment. The Constitution does not envisage any employment outside this constit-ut-ional scheme and without following the requirement set down therein. Regulation 99(3) of the National University Service Statute provided the following provision: “99(3) mivmwi wb‡qv‡Mi †¶‡Î Zdmxj ewb©Z weavb Abyhvqx mKj c‡` Db¥yI“ weÁvc‡bi gva¨‡g `iLv¯— Av‡e`b Kwiqv DI“ c` c~iY Kiv nB‡e Ges GBi“c wb‡hv‡Mi †¶‡Î miKvi mgq mgq RvixK…Z †KvUv m¤úwK©Z wb‡`©kvejx AbymiY Kwi‡Z nB‡e|” That is , the service Statute provided that the directions of Government regarding quota reservation should be followed: At the relevant time government directive were as under:-

- 67. The National University is an autono-mous Public body. As per provision of regulation 99(3) of Service Statute-6 it is the obligation of the University to follow those circulars of the Government. In the advertisement dated 05.01.2004 and alleged advertisement dated 15.01.2004 nothing has been mentioned regarding quota reservation provision. Article 29 of the Constitution guarantees equality of opportunity for all citizens in matters of employment or appointment to any public office. The concept of equality implies recourse to valid classification for preferences in favour of the disadvantaged classes of citizens to improve their conditions so as to enable them to raise themselves to positions of equality with the more fortunate classes of some citizens. Reservation should not be avoided except in extreme cases. In the case of Indra Sawhney and others Vs. Union of India and others reported in 1992 (3) S.C.C. page 212 the supreme Court of India that the provision of quota reservation is valid provision. The provision of quota reservation has not at all been followed in case of appointments of the added respondents.
- 68. Instances of other irreguleries and abuse of power
1) Respondent No.502 Mollah Masumul Haque joined as Assistant Registrar on adhoc basis on 04.1.2004 having 5 increments. On 05.1.2004 advertise-ment was published and he filed application as adhoc appointed candidate and got him selected on 7.3.2004 and Syndicate approved the same on 30.3.2004 and thereafter on 05.4.2004 he managed to get appoint-ment as Deputy Registrar (Annexure- I) of the affidavit-in-opposition filed by him and others.
2) Similarly about 86 officers and employees were appointed on 4.1.2004 and they filed application to be appointed as regular basis in response to the advertisment on 05.1.2004 and all most all them got them appointed.
3) Before 05.1.2004 331 persons were appointed out of them 161 persons joined on the same day i.e. on the date of appointment and 131 persons joined on the next day. All most of them were thereafter appointed by virtue of the advertisement dated 05.12005 as adhoc appointees.
4) Taking opportunity of non mentioning age limit many aged persons managed to get their appointments. For example Mohammad Harun- Al-Rashid was born on 25.2.1959. That is, at the age of 45 years he filed application for the post of Deputy Registrar and got him appointed.
5) Sheikh Abdullah Al Tarik, (2) Aysha Akter, (3) Md. Mahmudur Rahman, (4) A.K.M. Nurul Alam T%alukder, (5) Jakir Hossain Patwary, (6) Md. Osman Gani, (7) Faruque Ahmmed, (8) Md. Bashir Hossain, (3) Md. Saiful Alam, (10) Dil Rawshan, (11) Nurul Amin, (12) Shahidul Islam, (13) Nazman Nahar, (14) Molla Masumul Haque and many others were given two to five advance increments at the time of their joining.
- 69. No appointment can be made in deviation of or departure from the procedures laid down in the statutory rules. The instrumentality of the State must realize that it is charged with a big trust.
- 70. The learned Advocates for the added respondents submit that University Inquiry report is not free from bias and no opportunity of hearing has been given to persons affected by the report. Due to change of the Govern-ment the University Adiministration being biased managed to get such report. But during period of the then Government an independent body namely University Grant Commission, at the instance of the Ministry of Education, held an inquiry. Chiarman of said Inquiry Committee was Prof. Asaduzzam an, the then Chairman of the U.G.C. Other members were: Prof. Dr. Md. Sultan Hossain, and Mr. Khalequzzaman. In their inquiry report they have inter alia, stated :
