    the preferences expressed by them for the various services and posts:
    Provided that a candidate belonging to a reserved category,
    though not qualifying by the standard prescribed by the Commission

    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
    any manner.
    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
    than :
    Better eye Worse eye
    V‐5/6 Reads 6. V‐6/12 Reads 1.
    Spectacles will be allowed for either eye up to plus 5.0 or
    minus 5.0 D; provided that there are no morbid changes
    in the fundus.
    (b) In myopia if there is a posterior staphyloma, the
    spectacles must not exceed 2.5 D in either eye.
    (c) In case of astigmatism, the combined lenses must

    of the candidate.
    (e) Each eye must have a full field of vision as tested
    by hand movements.
    (f) Any defect in colour vision will be noted, but will
    not cause rejection of the candidate.

    opinion of the Ophthalmic Specialist will be
    (h) No candidate will be accepted whose standard of
    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
    are sound;
    (e) that there is no evidence of abdominal disease;

    (i) that he does not suffer from any inveterate etc.
    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
    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
    Medical Examiner:‐
    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
    to his medical examination and must sign the declaration appended
    thereto. His attention is specially directed to the warning contained in
    the note below:‐
    1. State your name in full.
    2. State your age and birth place.
    3. (a) have you ever had small pox intermittent or

    (b) any other disease or accident requiring
    confinement to bed, and medical or surgical
    (c) have you ever been rejected by a medical
    Board or a duly constituted Medical
    4. When were you last vaccinated?
    5. Have you or any of your nearer relations been
    affected with consumption, scrofula, asthama, fits,
    epilepsy, or insanity?

    Note 1‐ The candidate will be held responsible for the accuracy of the
    above statement. By willfully suppressing any information, he will
    incur the risk of losing the appointment and if appointed of forfeiting
    all claims to superannuation allowance or gratuity.
    Note 2‐ A candidate for direct recruitment should attach with the
    prescribed application a treasury receipt for an amount of Rs.16 on
    account of Examination fee which shall not be refundable in the event
    of the candidates failing to be selected by the Medical Board.
    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
    any way.
    (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
    for service.
    (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
    6/6 6/12
    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
    _________________ _______________ ________

    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
    during inflation.
    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
    strict supervision.
    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
    of varicocele, varicose venis or piles;
    (h) that his limbs, hands and feet are well formed and
    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 following intimation is made for the guidance of the
    Medical Examiner:‐
    1. The standard of physical fitness to be adopted should make on
    due allowance for the age and length of service, if any, of the
    candidate concerned.
    No person will be deemed qualified for admission to the Public
    Service who shall not satisfy the appointing authority, as the case may
    be that he has no disease, constitutional affection, or bodily infirmity
    unfitting him, or likely to unfit him for that service
    It should be understood that the question of fitness involves
    the future as well as the present and that one of the main objects of
    medical examination is to secure continuous effective service, and in
    the case of candidates for permanent appointment to prevent early
    pension or payments 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 rejection of a candidate need
    not be advised on account of the presence of a defect which is only a
    small proportion of cases is found to interfere with continuous
    effective service.
    A lady doctor will be co‐opted as a member of the Medical
    Board whenever a woman candidate is to be examined.
    The report of the Medical Board should be treated as
    In case where a candidate is declared unfit for appointment in
    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.
    In the case of candidates who are to be declared “Temporarily
    Unfit” the period specified for re‐examination should not ordinarily
    exceed six months at the maximum. On re‐examination after the
    specified period these candidates should not be declared temporarily
    unfit for a further period but a final decision in regard to their fitness
    for appointment or otherwise should be given.
