CHO recruitment / 3450 posts now available to youth of Madhya Pradesh till age of 40

Bhopal, October 25, 2019 (Muslim Saleem): Now the age limit for recruitment of 3450 contractual posts of Community Health Officer in National Health Mission (NHM) will be increased from 35 to 40 years. Despite the general administration department’s rule, the age limit in this recruitment for MP youth was reduced to 5 years, which is now being changed. Now the age limit will be 40 years for unreserved category, while 45 years for reserved. The government will start the process of filling these posts by issuing fresh advertisements.
This decision of the government will benefit about 25 thousand young applicants of the state. It is noteworthy that Bhaskar raised the issue of reducing the age limit for the youth of Madhya Pradesh to five years in CHO recruitment. Under the Health and Wellness Program of the Central Government, contractual CHOs are to be appointed in all the states of the country.
Outsiders in other states have no chance
Under NHM, states like Rajasthan, Maharashtra, Haryana and Bihar have given priority to the youth of their state. These states have made eligibility of permanent resident and registration in the state board mandatory in the online application. This will not give opportunity to the youth of Madhya Pradesh. On the other hand, Madhya Pradesh NHM has put the native and registered candidates of another state in unreserved. This will also give opportunity to the youth of other states on general category seats.
More than 25 thousand applicants will be benefited, on July 4, the age limit was increased from 35 to 40 years
Kamal Nath cabinet on 4 July had increased the age limit from 35 to 40 years to give more opportunities to the youth of the state. Since then, new posts of jobs in all departments are being filled in the age limit of 21 to 40 years. The second important decision in the cabinet was to make compulsory registration in the employment office of MP. NHM has also not followed this rule for recruitment to posts. NHM has not considered registration in the State Employment Exchange as mandatory.
Orders will be issued soon
The age limit for recruitment of contractual posts of CHOs in NHM has been tested. This age limit will be 40 years. Instructions have been given to issue its order.
