Regulations for the Medical Examination of Candidates for
admission to the Jammu and Kashmir Police (Gazetted) Service.
These regulations are intended merely for the guidance
of Medical Examiners and are not meant to restrict their discretion in
1. To be passed as medically fit for admission to the J&K Police
(Gazetted) Service, a candidate must be in good mental and bodily
health and free from any physical defect likely to interfere with the
efficient performance of the duties of his appointment.
2. The candidate’s height will be measured as follows:‐
He will remove his shoes and be placed against the standard
with his feet together, and the weight thrown on the heels and
not on the toes of outer sides of the feet. He will stand erect
without rigidity and with the heel claves, buttocks and
shoulders touching the standard; the chin will be depressed to
bring the vertex of the heel level under the horizontal bar, and
the height will be recorded in inches and parts of an inch to
3. The candidate’s chest will be measured as follows:‐
He will be made to stand erect with his feet together and to
raise his arms over his head. The tape will be so adjusted round
the chest that its upper edge touches the interior angles of the
shoulders blades behind and its lower edge the upper part of
the nipple in front. The arms will then be lowered to hand
loosely by the side, and care‐be taken that shoulders are not
thrown upwards or backwards so as to displace the tape.
The candidate will then be directed to take deep inspiration
several times, and the maximum expansion of the chest will be
carefully noted. The range of the expansion should not be less
than 1&1/2//. The minimum and maximum will then be
recorded in inches ‐ 33‐35, 34‐36 etc. etc.
In recording the measurement, fractions of less than ½ inch
should not be noted. In this connection, the following table is
given for the guidance of Medical Officer.

4. The candidate will also be weighed, and his weight recorded in
pounds. Fractions of pound should not be noted.
5. The following conditions should be observed in connection with
the test for acuteness of vision:‐
Vision of Candidates.
(a) No candidate will be accepted whose vision is less

vision does not come up to the specified
requirements without the use of the contact
6. The Urine (passed in presence of the Examiner) should be
examined and the result recorded.
7. The following additional points should be observed:
(a) That the candidate’s hearing in each ear is good,
and that there is no sign of disease of the ear;
(b) that his speech is without impediment;
(c) that his teeth are in good order and that he is
provided with dentures where necessary for
effective mastication (well filled teeth will be
considered as sound).
(d) that his chest is well formed and his chest
expansion sufficient, and that his heart and lungs
(e) that there is no evidence of abdominal disease;
(f) that he is not raptured;
(g) that he does not suffer from hydrocelea severe
degree of varicose, varico sevens or piles.

(k) that he does not bear traces of acute or chronic
disease pointing to an impaired constitution;
(L) that he bears marks of efficient vaccination and
evidence of re‐vaccination within the last 12
When any defect is found it must be noted in the
certificate and the medical examiner should state his opinion whether
or not it is likely to interfere with the efficient performance of the
duties which will be required of the candidate. If the condition is
remediable by operation it should be stated.
The following intimation is made for the guidance of the
1. In the medical examination of candidates Medical Officers are
specially required to use tact and judgment and to take proper
precaution to secure privacy with the object of removing any
objection which may be made by individuals to stripping.
2. Should a candidate object to the Exposure of his person for the
detection of haemorrhoide, venereal diseases, hernia and disease of
the testicles, scrotum and rectum, the candidate must if this
examination in his case is in the opinion of the Board necessary, be
3. The opinion of the Board accepting or rejecting a candidate is
final and cannot be questioned on this ground. The Board is debarred
from disclosing to any candidate, permanently unfit; the reasons for
his rejection. In these cases their opinion and report is to be treated
as strictly confidential and for the information of Government only.
Where, however, the Board detects a temporary defect amendable to
treatment the candidate may be so informed in order that he may
have the defect remedied and present himself for re‐examination.
4. No person will be deemed qualified for admission to the service
who shall not satisfy the Government that he has no disease,
constitutional affection or bodily infirmity unfitting him or likely to
unfit him, for that service.
5. It should be understood that the question of fitness involves
the future as well as the present, and the main object of medical
examination is to secure continuous effective service, and in the case
of candidates for permanent appointment to prevent early pension or
payment in case of premature death. It is at the same time to be
noted that the question is one of the likelihood of continuous
effective service and that the rejection of a candidate need not be
advised on account of the presence of a defect which is only a small
pro‐portion of cases is found to interfere with continuous effectively
The candidate must make the statement required below prior

REGULATIONS RELATING TO THE PHYSICAL EXAMINATION OF
These regulations are notified for the convenience of
candidates and in order to enable them to ascertain the probability of
their coming up to the required physical standard. But it must be
clearly understood that the Government reserves to themselves an
absolute discretion to reject as unfit any candidate whom they may
consider on the report of the Medical Board, to be physically
disqualified and that their discretion, is in no respect limited by these
regulations. These regulations are intended merely for the guidance
of Medical Examiners and are not meant to restrict their discretion in
(1) To be passed as fit for appointment, a candidate
must be in good mental and bodily health and free from any physical
defect likely to interfere with the efficient performance of the duties
of his appointment.
Provided that Medical Board shall intimate the nature
and degree of disability of physically challenged candidate in terms of
Government Order No.62‐SW of 2001 dated: 13.03.2001 with specific
recommendations, if any, in respect of each of such candidate (s) for
appointment to various posts through the Combined Competitive
(2) In the matter of correlation of age, height and
chest girth of candidate, it is left to the Medical Board to use
whatever correlation figures are considered most suitable as a guide
in the examination of the candidates. If there be any disproportion
with regard to height, weight and chest girth, the candidate should be
hospitalized for investigation and X‐Ray of the chest taken before the
candidate is declared fit or not fit by the Board.
(3) The candidate will be weighed and his weight
recorded in kilograms; fractions of a half a kilogram should not be
(4) The candidate’s eye sight will be tested in
accordance with the following rules. The result of each test will be
(i) General: ‐ The candidate’s eye will be subjected to
a general examination directed to the detection of any disease or
abnormality. The candidate will be rejected if he suffers from any
squint or morbid conditions of eyes, eye‐lids or contiguous structures
of such a sort as to render or likely at a future date to render him unfit
(ii) Visual Activity:‐ The examination for determining
the acuteness of vision includes two tests, one for distant, the other
for near vision. Each eye will be examined separately.
There shall be no limit for minimum naked eye vision but
the naked eye vision of the candidates shall, however, be recorded by
the Medical Board or Medical authority in every case, as it will furnish
the basic information in regard to the condition of the eye.
The standards for distant and near vision or without
glasses shall be as follows:‐
Distant vision Near vision
Better eye Worse eye Better eye Worse eye
6/9 6/9 Sn 0 6 Sn. 0
Note: ‐ (1) Total amount of Myopia (including the cylinder) shall not
exceed 8.00 D in each eye. Total Hypermetropia shall not
exceed + 6.00 D in each eye
(2) Fundus Examination:‐ Wherever possible, fundus
examination will be carried out at the discretion of the
Medical Board and results recorded.
(3) Colour Vision: ‐ Colour perception should be graded into
a higher and a lower grade depending upon the size of
the aperture in the lantern as described in the table
Grade Higher Grade of Lower Grade
Colour perception of Colour
_________________ _______________ ________
1. Distance between the lambs
Candidate. 4.9 meters 4.9 meters
2. Size of aperture 1.8 mm 1.8 mm
3. Time of exposure 5 sec. 5 sec.
(iii) Satisfactory colour vision constitutes recognition with ease
and without hesitation of signal red, signal green and white colours.
The use of Ishihara’s Plates, shown in good light and suitable lantern
like Edrige green’s shall be considered quite dependable for testing
colour vision. In doubtful cases, where a candidate fails to qualify
when tested by only one of the two tests, both the tests should be
(4) Field of Vision. The field of vision shall be tested in
respect of all services by the confrontation method. Where such test
gives unsatisfactory or doubtful results, the field of vision should be
determined on the perimeter.
(5) Night Blindness: ‐ Night blindness need not be tested as a
routine but only in special cases. No standard test for the testing of
night blindness or dark adaptation is prescribed. The medical board
should be given the discretion to improvise such rough tests, e.g.
recording the visual acuity with reduced illumination or by making the
candidate recognize various objects in a darkened room after he/she
has been there for 20 to 30 minutes. Candidate’s own statements
should not always be relied upon but they should be given due
(6) Ocular conditions other than visual activity:‐
(a) Any organic disease or a progressive refractive error
which is likely to result in lowering the visual activity should be
considered as a disqualification.
(b) Trachoma:‐ Trachoma unless complicated shall not
ordinarily be a cause for disqualification.
(c) One‐eyed persons:‐ The employment of one eyed
individuals is not recommended.
(7) Blood pressure:‐ The Board will use its discretion
regarding Blood Pressure. A rough method of calculating normal
maximum systolic pressure is as follows:‐
(i) With young subjects 15‐25 years of age the average is
about 100 plus the age.
(ii) With subjects over 25 years of age the general rule of 110
plus half the age seems quite satisfactory.
N.B.:‐ As a rule any systolic pressure over 140 mm. and diastolic
over 90 mm. should be regarded as suspicious and the candidate
should be hospitalized by the Board before giving their final opinion
regarding the candidate’s fitness or otherwise. The hospitalization
report should indicate whether the rise in Blood pressure is of a
transient nature due to excitement etc. or whether it is due to any
organic disease. In all such cases X‐Ray and electrocardiographic
examinations of heart and blood urea clearance test should also be
done as a routine. The final decision as to the fitness or otherwise of a
candidate will, however, rest with the medical board only.
Method of taking Blood Pressure.
The mercury manometer type of instrument should be
used as a rule. The measurement should not be taken within fifteen
minutes of any exercise of excitement. Provided the patient and
particularly his arm is relaxed, he may be either lying or sitting. The
arm is supported comfortably at the patient’s side in a more or less
horizontal position. The arm should be free from the clothes to the
shoulder. The cuff completely deflated should be applied with the
middle of the rubber over the inner side of the arm, and its lower
edge an inch or two above the bend of the elbow. The following turns
of cloth bandage should spread evenly over the bag to avoid bulging
The brachial artery is located by palpitation at the bend
of the elbow and the stethoscope is then applied lightly and centrally
over it below, but not in contact with the cuff. The cuff is inflated to
above 200 mm. Hg. and then slowly deflated. The level at which the
column stands when soft successive sounds are heard represents the
Systolic Pressure. When more air is allowed to escape the sounds will
be heard to increase in intensity. The level at which the well‐heard
clear sound change to soft muffled fading sounds represents the
diastolic pressure. The measurements should be taken in a fairly brief
period of time as prolonged pressure of the cuff is irritating to the
patient and will vitiate the readings. Re‐checking, if necessary, should
be done only a few minutes after complete deflation of the cuff.
Sometime as the cuff is deflated, sounds are heard at a certain level;
they may disappear as pressure falls and re‐appears at a still lower
level. This “Silent gap” may cause error in reading.
8. The urine (passed in presence of the examiner) should be
examined and the results recorded. Where a Medical Board finds
sugar present in a candidate’s urine by the usual chemical tests, the
Board will proceed with the examination with all its other aspects and
will also specially note any signs or symptoms suggestive of diabetes.
If except for the glycosauria the Board finds the candidate conforms
to the standard of medical fitness required, they may pass the
candidate. “fit subject to the glycosauria being non‐diabetic” and the
Board will refer the case to a specified specialist in Medicine who has
hospital and laboratory facilities at his disposal . The Medical
Specialist will carry out whatever examinations clinical and laboratory
he considers necessary including a standard blood sugar tolerance
test and will submit his opinion to the Medical Board upon which the
Medical Board will base its final opinion “fit” or “unfit”. The candidate
will not be required to appear in person before the Board on the
second occasion. To exclude the effects of medication it may be
necessary to retain, a candidate for several days in hospital under
9. The following additional points should be observed:‐
(a) that the candidate’s hearing in each ear is good and that
there is no sign of disease of the ear. In case it is defective the
candidate should be examined by the ear specialist. Provided that if
the defect in hearing is remediable by operation or by use of a hearing
aid a candidate cannot be declared unfit on that account provided
he/she has no progressive disease in the ear;
(b) that his/her speech is without impediment.
(c) that his/her teeth, are in good order and that he/she is
provided with denture where necessary for effective mastication (well
filled teeth will be considered as sound);
(d) that the chest is well formed and his chest expansion
sufficient; and that his heart and lungs are sound;
(e) that there is no evidence of any abdominal disease;
(f) that he is not raptured;
(g) that he does not suffer from hydrocele, a severe degree

developed and that there is free and perfect motion of all his joints;
(i) that he does not suffer from any inveterate skin disease;
(j) that there is no congenital malformation or defect;
(k) that he does not bear traces of acute or chronic disease
pointing to an impaired constitution;
(L) That he bears‐marks of efficient vaccination and
(m) that he is free from communicable disease.
10. Radiographic examination of the chest should be done as
a routine in all cases for detecting any abnormality of the heart and
lungs, which may not be apparent by ordinary physical examination.
11. When any defect is found it must be noted in the
certificate and the medical examiner should state his opinion whether
or not it is likely to interfere with the efficient performance of the
duties which will be required of the candidate.
NOTE: ‐ Candidates are warned that there is no right of appeal
from a Medical Board, special or standing, appointed to determine
their fitness for the above service. If however, Government are
satisfied on the evidence produced before them of the possibility of
an error of judgment in the decision of the First Board, it is open to
Government to allow an appeal to a second Board. Such evidence
should be submitted within one month of the date of the
communication in which the decision of the first Medical Board is
communicated to the candidate, otherwise no request for an appeal
to a second Medical Board, will be considered.
If any medical certificate is produced by a candidate as a piece
of evidence about the possibility of an error of judgment in the
decision of the First Board, the certificate will not be taken into
consideration unless it contains a note by the medical practitioner
concerned to the effect that it has been given in full knowledge of the
fact that the candidate has already been rejected as unfit for service
by the Medical Board.

the Government Service the grounds for rejection may be
communicated to the candidate in broad terms without giving minute
details regarding the defect pointed out by the Medical Board.
In case where a Medical Board considers that a minor disability
disqualifying a candidate for Government Service can be cured by
treatment (medical or surgical) a statement to that effect should be
recorded by the Medical Board. There is no objection to a candidate
being informed of the Board’s opinion to this effect by the appointing
authority and when a cure has been effected it will be open to the
authority concerned to ask for another Medical Board.
