Employer has the independence to decide the eligibility criterion for recruitment #indianlaws

In a case before the Delhi High Court, petitioner was denied appointment on ground that he only had three years diploma in Hotel Management instead of the required graduation degree of a recognized university. The degree required for the recruitment as advertised, was graduation degree.

The Hon’ble Court held that it is privilege of employer to decide the qualifications it wants from a candidate for applying and granting appointment to a post and an employee cannot dictate, that instead of qualifications as prescribed by proposed employer some other qualifications be taken.
