Hisar, February 11

Long queues of youths, who have been selected for government jobs and need to get a medical fitness certification, have exposed the limited facilities and congested space at the Civil Hospital here. The qualified candidates, who have been getting their medical tests done at the Civil Hospital for the past two days, are also facing inconvenience due to the process of the test.

Over 2,000 qualified candidates, who have been selected for the posts of the assistant linesman (ALM) and shift attendant (SA) in Dakshin Haryana Bijli Vitran Nigam (DHBVN), have reached Maharaja Agrasen District Civil Hospital here for the medical tests. They need to submit the medical fitness certificate before their joining the DHBVN head office here.

Doctors from other hospital deputed

We have specially deputed specialist doctors from the medical college in Agroha and other government hospitals in the district for the purpose. There are about 3,000 newly recruited candidates who are visiting the hospital, which has led to the heavy rush. We have opened the test counters till late night. — Dr Sapna Gahlawat , Civil Surgeon

The Haryana Staff Selection Commission (HSSC) recently recruited the ALMs and SAs.

The qualified candidates said they had to stand in queues early in the morning because it was a long process.

“Tests include eye check-up, ENT check-up, ECG test, physician test and X-Ray. There are long queues for every test. I stand in the queue early in the morning even before 9 am. I have got two tests done so far. I guess it will take an entire day to complete the process. My colleagues yesterday informed me that they stayed till past midnight for the X-Ray,” said one of the selected candidates.

They said for the convenience and trouble-free process, there should be multiple windows for the medical tests.

Civil Surgeon Dr Sapna Gahlawat said they have specially deputed specialist doctors from the medical college in Agroha and other government hospitals in the district for the purpose.

“There are about 3,000 newly recruited candidates who are visiting the hospital, which had led to the heavy rush. We have opened the test counters till late night,” she said.

Besides the candidates selected on various posts under the DHBVN, a number of candidates who have been recruited on the basis of the common eligibility test (CET) are required to procure medical fitness certificates from the government hospital.

Ravi Thakral, spokesperson for the DHBVN, said they had completed the initial formalities, including biometrics checking of the candidates, and received their original documents for verification.

“We have set up nine desks for the verification process and it has been completed. About 100 selected candidates have not arrived and we will also complete the formalities when they visit the office. Now, the selected candidates are required to furnish their medical examination certificate and character verification from the police before their regular joining,” he added.

Ravi Thakral said 1,695 ALMs and 351 SAs had been selected after the recruitment process by the Haryana Staff Selection Commission.
