The Health and Family Welfare Department consists of more number of
directorates under its control. Now appointment to various categories is being made by
different modes of appointment. In the case of Direct Recruitment in Medical and Para
Medical or Non-Medical category, the appointment is made either through Tamil Nadu
Public Service Commission or through Employment Exchange. For a very long time, the
Government have found it difficult to make appointments in a speedy manner, which
affects the public especially the poor patients who approach the Government Hospital
for treatment. Further medical services are essential services and keeping the posts
vacant for a long time is not desirable in public interest. Therefore it is considered
necessary to centralize the mode of direct recruitment by constituting a separate
Recruitment Board for the Health and Family Welfare Department on the lines of the
Teachers Recruitment Board.

Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission. In the case of Para Medical category like

orders were issued in Government Orders 2
read above. In respect of other 2
Para-Medical and other basic service category, direct recruitment is being made by
respective Head of Departments / Appointing Authorities through Employment
Exchange duly following the rule of reservation.

posts under the purview of Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission with a sanctioned
