The Allahabad High Court has stayed Lucknow University from finalizing the selection of 180 assistant professors for time being for its various departments while allowing it to keep on the selection process.

The bench of Justice Irshad Ali also asked the varsity to keep one post of the assistant professor in the Anthropology Department vacant for the petitioner, Dr Preeti Singh, a general category candidate, till the decision on her petition.The bench also asked the state government and University to file their replies to Singh’s petition by March 10, the next date for the hearing of the case.
