Uttarakhand government has decided to reappoint 424 constables dismissed for sending in their job applications from two districts simultaneously, principal secretary (Home) Om Prakash said here on Tuesday.

The move comes as a big relief for the dismissed constables as they had lost their case even in the Uttarakhand high court. Advertising vacancies in the rank of constables in state police in 2010-2011, the state government had invited applications from eligible candidates making it clear that they were entitled to send their application only from one place.

It had also warned of stern penal action including termination of service in case a candidate was found guilty of applying from two districts simultaneously. However, 849 of the applicants ignored the advisory and submitted their job applications from two districts at a time.
