Qualified for recruitment


A total of 880 men, 58 women from Ramanathapuram and Sivaganga districts and lone transgender – R Nasriya from Ramanathapuram district – have qualified for recruitment for the posts of grade II constables and grade II jail warders after clearing written and physical tests.

The men – 459 from Ramanathapuram and 421 from Sivaganga and women 32 from Ramanathapuram and 26 from Sivaganga and Nasriya were qualified for recruitment based on the marks they scored in written examinations and stars in the physical tests, official sources said.

Acting on the orders of the Superintendents of Police of the two districts, police officials obtained finger prints of those selected and verified their certificates in the two districts on Thursday and Friday. Their educational qualifications and community and nativity would be cross checked with schools and colleges they studied and with revenue department, the officials said.

All those selected, however, have to clear two more hurdles of police verification and medical tests before they were finally issued appointment orders to don the Khaki uniform, the officials said. They were liable to be rejected if they faced FIRs and failed in medical tests, they said.

After the respective police stations issued the verification certificates, the same would be cross checked with special branch police, they said. In all, 1,460 men became eligible for selection after they cleared the written and physical tests but only 880 of them were selected based on their state level rankings.

In case of women all the 58 who became eligible were selected, the officials said. In all, 369 women appeared for the physical tests and more than 65% of them failed as they could not obtain the mandatory one star in long jump. As the transgender took the physical tests on the orders of the Madurai bench of Madras High Court, her selection has been intimated to the court and Director General of Police, they said.

Interestingly, about 90% of men and women who got selected hailed from the backward areas of Kamuthi, Mudukulathur and Paramakudi in Ramanathapuram district. People from these areas always showed interest in joining the police force, they added.
