The department will send a proposal to the commission, and MBBS qualified candidates can apply. The recruitment process will involve a written test worth 85 marks and a viva-voce worth 15 marks.”

He further detailed, “In addition, 16 superspecialists and 172 specialists under Grade-IV will be recruited through PRTC. Superspecialists will be appointed in state hospitals, while specialists will be placed in various hospitals up to the Community Health Centre (CHC) level.”

In the Fire and Emergency Services department, 49 vacant sub-officer positions will be filled through TPSC.
