This is old news
Earlier, Government doctors were required to put in a minimum of two years of ‘satisfactory, continuous and uninterrupted service’ to be eligible to apply for postgraduate medical courses under the in-service candidate quota. They were required to serve in a primary health centre after the completion of the PG course as well.
In 2004, the government changed it to 3 years
A clause making three years of uninterrupted service mandatory for Government doctors to join postgraduate medical courses under the in-service candidate quota, as against original two years, was set aside by the Madras High Court on in 23.12.2004 in W.A.Nos.2091/2004 etc..
Now the update is
A Special Leave Petition No. 2229/2005 has been filed by this Government of Tamil Nadu against the orders passed by the Bench of the High Court of Madras. A stay has been granted against the high court orders
