Court could not interfere in such policy matters, says Justice Shahid Karim

LAHORE: The Lahore High Court (LHC) on Friday dismissed a petition seeking two-year extension in the age limit of government servants taking part in the Federal Public Service Commission (FPSC) exams.

Declaring the petition as inadmissible, the LHC Justice Shahid Karim noted that to give relaxations and make categories is a departmental affair and the court could not interfere in such policy matters.
In his petition, a government servant, Muhammad Hasnain, had contended that government servants are not given relaxation in age limit in FPSC exams.

He said a number of government servants could not take the exams due to non-provision of this relaxation. The petitioner said non provision of age limit relaxation to government servants was against Article 4 and 25. However, the court dismissed the plea.
