The Madras High Court (HC) passes the order to stay the Medical Service Recruitment Board’s (MSRB) move for filling the 2,500 Vacancies of Assistant Civil Surgeons in Tamil Nadu.
The petition was filed by A. Sagaya Panimalar from Virudunagar about the notification released by MSRB. He said on November 10, 2016; the MSRB issued a notification of 1,223 vacancies, including 144 backlog posts for physically challenged people for the assistant civil surgeon. The written exam was conducted on February 12, 2017. After the certification verification process was carried out, the selected candidates are presently in service.
The recruitment based on the November notification was over. Now without following the procedure for old notification, MSRB started current recruitment process to fill up 2,500 vacancies of the assistant civil surgeon. The verification of certificates began on 5th July and ended on July 18. The MSRB should not process the recruitment drive, the petitioner stated to HC.
Sagaya was not able to apply for the post based on the former occasion. As per the notification released in November 2016, a candidate has to get registered with his name with Tamil Nadu medical Council before the beginning of notification. The petitioner failed to fulfil that condition and early waiting for the new notification. Many aspirants are waiting for the notification like the petitioner.
