Tamil proficiency for appointment in public service UPSC NOTE

 Why in news

  • The Madras High Court has refused to accept a contention that the Tamil Nadu government’s insistence on scoring 40 out of 150 in the Tamil language proficiency paper as a pre-condition to evaluate the general studies paper, and the decision to consider the cumulative marks in both papers for appointment in public service, would amount to giving 100% quota to Tamil-medium candidates

  • Notification were fully in consonance with Section 21-A of the Tamil Nadu Government Servants (Conditions of Service) Act, 2016, and therefore, they could not be found fault with, the court said

  • The court said that Section 21-A was introduced in 2021 and many recruitments had taken place since then. 

  • A subordinate legislation can be assailed only if it can be shown that it is contrary to the Constitution or it is ultra vires the parent Act

  • The petitioners have not been able to demonstrate that the impugned (under challenge) GO is ultra vires the Constitution

  • As rightly pointed out by the learned Advocate-General, government servants holding Group IV posts will have to have direct interaction with the people

  • They should be able to fluently converse and write in Tamil. 

  • This is a sine qua non for efficient discharge of their functions and duties

  • This can be found out only by making them write the eligibility paper in Tamil.
