The Jharkhand High Court on Monday gave a big verdict in the planning policy case, rejecting 100 per cent reservation for the local people as wrong. On the plea challenging the planning policy enacted and implemented by the Jharkhand government, the full bench of the court has canceled the appointment process of 18,000 teachers, giving an important decision. Apart from this, the planning policy has also been repealed by the High Court. A few days ago, the court reserved the verdict while holding the final hearing in the case. During the hearing, the state government upheld the state's planning policy and said in court that this policy has been made keeping in mind the many circumstances of Jharkhand.

Applicant Soni Kumari and others have challenged the planning policy by filing a petition before the Jharkhand High Court regarding the local policy of the state. The full bench consists of Justice Harish Chandra Mishra, Justice S. Chandrasekhar and Justice Deepak Roshan. During previous hearings, the court removed the adjournment from 11 districts. Their future rested on the decision of the court.

A petition was filed in the High Court against reserving all posts in the scheduled 13 districts of the state for the local people. The court reserved its decision after hearing all the parties in the past. During the hearing, all the judges of the full bench agreed that some section of advertisement number 21 was directed to publish fresh advertisement for the scheduled district. The appointments already made in the scheduled districts of the state have also been canceled. Apart from this, the notification issued by the Governor was also rejected. Appointment will continue in non-scheduled districts.
