Kochi: The Kerala High Court on Thursday stayed the regularisation of temporary employees in self-governing institutions.
The regularised appointments which are yet to be completed were frozen.
The act of regularising the temporary staff was challenged in the court. The court considered six petitions including that of the PSC rank holders.
Earlier, the state government had issued order regularising the temporary staff who have 10 years of experience in various institutions. The court will hold a detailed hearing on the petitions on March 12.
