By ChennaiOnline News Service

Madurai, Oct 20 (Chennaionline): The Madurai Bench of the Madras High Court today admitted a writ petition seeking to quash the examination conducted by the Tamil Nadu Public Service Commission (TNPSC) for the recruitment of assistant surgeons held on October 16.

Justice D Murugesan issued notice to the Deputy Secretary of the TNPSC and the Director of Public Health.

Referring to the prayer of the petitioner Dr M Manimozhi that the court should grant an interim injunction restraining the TNPSC from publishing the results, the judge asked the government pleader to get the government''s view and posted the case for October 27.

The petitioner submitted that she had applied for the examination conducted to recruit 1,825 assistant surgeons (1,295 general and 530 speciality) before the due date of August4.

However, the application for direct recruitment was rejected because she had not produced both particulars and declarations. Later, when she visited the TNPSC office and submitted the particulars required by them, she was told that she would get the hall ticket. However, she did not get the same.

She said if she had not submitted the particulars, the same could be obtained at anytime of the recruitment.

She also pointed out that TNPSC had rejected 2,500 applications out of the total 6,500 applications on flimsy grounds. However, some candidates had approached the High Court which directed the TNPSC to permit them to write the examination. (Agencies)
