SBI recruiting on overall cutoff basis & not sectional cutoff basis

Sir in the recruitment notification of SBI PO, basically there are 2 types of cutoff: 1. Overall cutoff 2. sectional cutoff It means one has to qualify the sectional cutoff of each subject as well as the overall cutoff. IN the NOTIFICATION it was clearly mentioned: "The objective test of 3 hours duration consist of 4 Sections for total 200 marks. The objective test will have separate timing for every section. The candidates are required to qualify in each of the Tests by securing passing marks, to be decided by the Bank" but sir SBI recruited the candidates on overall score basis and through the RTI we came to know that there were 62 candidates that are selected even after scoring 0 marks in atleast one of the subjects. SO MY QUESTION IS: is it not against the rule of SC that 'Rule of the game cannot be changed once a game has begun". SBI recruiting candidates who have scored 0 marks in atleast one of the subjects(like Quants/Reasoning/English/GK). Is it not wrong as per the law?

Your question is right .SBI cannot ignore rules of selection process .
If paasing mark is required in all papers according to the rule then SBI
Can't be violate . Best way for u is that file a writ petition under article 226 constitution of India before the High Court .U can pray for issuing a writ in nature of certiorary for quashing the whole selection process

Yess it is absolutely wrong once the advertisement issued for the post and later on the terms and condition can't be changed. But have you courage to challenge the said notification recruitment and selection thereon. Now you have to file your representation and thereafter challenge it. Make sure proceed further in consultation with an advocate who is proficient in the matter.
