Validity of Selection List.

One of the Departmental Candidate was recommended for appointment by the selection committee for post X subject to age relaxation. But the competent authority refused to relax the age. The process took more than one year. Offer of appointment was not sent to any one. Whether the post can now be offered to the waiting list candidate after a period of one year, who is with in the prescribed age limit. Will the select list lapse after one year though the offer was not sent to any one.

Please reply at the earliest
