Facing flak over the cumbersome and tiring process of recruiting doctors and engineers through the Bihar Public Service Commission (BPSC), the Nitish Kumar regime has decided to do away with the practice of appointment through written examination.

“What is the necessity of a written examination for filling up vacancies of all technical posts? If one becomes an engineer or a doctor after studying meticulously for four-five years, then why appear for a written test again for recruitment?

“The degree should be enough. Show your degree and get a job,” Chief Minister Nitish Kumar said while speaking at a health department function, shortly before leaving for Udaipur in Rajasthan.

It is pertinent to mention here that Nitish himself is a graduate in electrical engineering from Bihar College of Engineering (BCE), now known as NIT, Patna.

Nitish was of the opinion that the process of appointment of doctors and engineers through the BPSC had often been caught in the legal tangle, thereby disrupting and delaying the entire recruitment process. This, in turn, has led to a huge backlog of vacancies for many technical posts from both the streams.

“All we would like to do is to appoint a Technical Commission, which, in place of the BPSC, would look into the academic records of doctors and engineers, besides verifying their degrees,” averred Nitish.

Currently, the BPSC is in the process of recruiting 1,150 regular doctors but the process got delayed due to legal tangles, has come under flak.

“In the next one year, the Technical Commission, and not the BPSC, will start appointing doctors,” said state Health Minister Mangal Pandey, who was also present at the function.

At present, as per the Bihar Health Service Cadre Rules, out of 100 marks, 50 marks are given based on the academic record of the candidate. The remaining 50 marks is for the number of years of experience (25 marks), post-graduation degree (15 marks) and interview (10 marks). This is beside written examination.
