The Supreme Court has held that a candidate who suppresses material information cannot claim right to continue in service, observing that such material suppression would have a “clear bearing on the character and antecedents of the employee in relation to his continuance in service.”
The Court was dealing with a case involving an over-qualified candidate who had applied for a peon position at a bank while suppressing the fact that he was overqualified (Chief Manager, Punjab National Bank & Anr. vs Amit Kumar Das).
