Application filling details are available on State Health Committee website Earlier, the State Health Committee had issued a notification for the post on March 9 but it was canceled on March 12 due to unavoidable reasons. Even in the ongoing restoration there has been no change in the vacancies in many categories. This time too, as there are no vacancies in the unreserved category, this issue may arise again.

Problem in restoring 45 thousand posts of health department
The health department had targeted to complete the recruitment of 45 thousand posts including nurses by October this year. But now the appointment is likely to be delayed. Recently, the High Court stayed the decision to increase the reservation limit from 50 to 65 percent in Bihar. In such a situation, the matter will remain stuck in the appointment until clear guidelines are issued by the General Administration Department in this regard. Due to this reason candidates have to wait more.

The dilemma regarding vacancies is whether reservation will be implemented at the rate of 75 per cent including 10 per cent reservation for economically weaker sections or as per the old norms. Until the percentage of reservation is determined, the vacancy roster will not be prepared accordingly. The department has intensified the process for recruitment to vacant posts in the health department including doctors, dentists, nurses, ANM, GNM, CHO and para medical. The department had asked to reserve vacancies in all districts as per the roster. 1339 Assistant Professors are to be appointed under the Department of Health and National Health Mission. 3523 Specialist Medical Officers and 396 General Medical Officers are to be appointed. 1290 General Medical Officers are also to be appointed on contract basis.
