Justice M.S. Ramachnadra Rao of Hyderabad High Court directed the TSPSC not to declare results of selection process for the posts of forest beat officers for eight weeks, as reservation for former defence personnel seems to have been ignored.

The judge was passing these orders in a case filed by Raghupati Reddy. He told the court that 1,857 vacancies of forest beat officers aware notified. As per rules, two percent of posts are to be reserved for former defence staff. This was not done. The judge said that this needs to be verified more thoroughly and adjourned the case by two weeks, but stayed the announcement of results by eight weeks.
