The final hearing of the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) filed by ACAUT along with Public Service Aspirants Nagaland (PSAN), in the Gauhati High Court, Kohima Bench, against backdoor appointments in 35 different departments is scheduled to be held on July 26, 2018.
According to sources in the ACAUT, the case was set to be heard on July 19 but was deferred to July 26 for final hearing. ACAUT and PSAN alleged that over 700 backdoor appointments were made by 35 different departments. 
In this regard, the PIL pleaded the Court to “quash and set aside the appointment of 51 backdoor appointees appointed against NPSC posts; and since the appointments were made after the court had banned backdoor appointments- 6th June 2016 judgment, to treat such appointments as contempt of court.”
It also pleaded to quash the Office Memorandums of 4/8/2008 and 11/8/2016, which confers powers upon the government to regularize all backdoor appointments after 3 years of service, which it said was in total contravention of the SC judgment as passed in Uma Devi case, 2006. 
The PIL further seeks from the court to “terminate the services of all 655 backdoor appointments made against NPSC posts, that is, appointed between the Umadevi judgment of 2006 and Gauhati HC order, Kohima, dated 6/6/16 Or requisition all the 706 (655+51) posts to the NPSC for general recruitment through open competitive examination and to submit the detailed status report of the 705 backdoor appointees before the court.”
