Orissa High Court, in a landmark judgment, has made it mandatory that a pass certificate in Oriya subject at the vernacular level must be a must for entry into Orissa Judicial Services.

It has approved the provision formulated in this respect by the Orissa State Public Services Commission.

Ms.madhumita Das, a candidate for O.J.S. in 2004, had challenged the OPSC order that had refused to entertain her application in absence of such a certificate. The High Court had allowed her to sit for the test and interview on condition that declaration of her result will remain tagged to the fate of the case.

A division bench comprising Justice B.P.Das and Justice A.K.Samantray has finally upheld the OPSC rule.
