Kerala Govt directs PSC to Cancel Tutor in Homeopathy Exams

Under Secretary, Department of Health & family Welfare, Govt. of Kerala directed Kerala Public Service Commission to cancel and freeze all the formalities related to Tutors in Homeopathy Examinations  for more than 21 posts and nine subjects conducted on13.10.2011 & 02.12.2011

Letter No.6695/J2/12 H& FWD dt 30.03.12

As per the letter by the Kerala Government to PSC

  1. As per the latest pay revision of homeopathy college teachers – Asst. Professor is the entry cadre
  2. As per the latest pay revision MD in Homeopathy is the basic qualification

Kerala PSC conducted examinations to the following subjects

  1. Homeopathic Pharmacy
  2. Case taking and repertorisation
  3. Organon of Medicine
  4. Pathology
  5. Surgery
  6. Practice of Medicine,
  7. Materia Medica
  8. Anatomy
  9. Physiology

This may be great injustice towards the thousands of candidates appeared for the examination after years of preparation and hard work. Why?

  • At the time of inviting application BHMS was the basic qualification
  • And the name of the post was – Tutor in Homeopathy
  • Even in Allopathy medical colleges – MBBS is the basic qualification
  • As per the Kerala Homeopathic Colleges Special rule 2001 – Tutor posts still exist – so it is not possible to abolish tutor posts with out amending special rule
  • In Kerala PG courses are available only in three subjects – outside Kerala in 7 subjects – So what will be the fate of 250 BHMS holders passing out every year from Kerala – even if the basic qualification is PG ?
  • Where we will accommodate BHMS holders without a post graduation?!

As per some reliable sources few postgraduate students’ request and foul play also resulted in the cancellation of the examinations.  They want new examination after completing their PG courses.

Govt. already initiated this movement even before the pay revision procedures coming into action.

Govt. of Kerala already enhanced the pension age of Homeopathy College teachers from 55 to 60 recently.

As per Kerala PSC regulations it is not possible to Cancel a post after its notification. But if the employer (Gov. of Kerala) is not willing to appoint, candidates are helpless.

PSC will probably complete its procedure in publishing the rank list as per reliable information.

Only 20 doctors got appointment as teachers in Kerala Homeopathy Medical Colleges since January 2006.

In medical Officer sector only 150 candidates got appointment even though the rank list contains more than 1000 candidates. That rank list will expire on July 2012.

Controlling Officer of Homeopathy yesterday requested Govt. of Kerala not to cancel the tutor posts. She also contacted PSC officials and expressed the concern of students and department. Since the department is in major short of teachers.

Central Council of Homeopathy probably withdraws the recognition of many PG courses because of the shortage of teaching staff as per CCH Minimum Standard of Education. CCH already warned Govt. of Kerala in the last visit. Next CCH inspection will be on May 2012.

Lateral Entry
On the basis of  this order, there is a strong movement for lateral entry – accommodating teachers from the aided colleges – they have surplus and excess ‘payment teachers’ – to government colleges on the background of shortage of teaching staffs in Govt. colleges as per CCH norms.

  1. In India, Basic education is BHMS or MBBS. They are qualified as Doctors. Post graduation is ONLY an added qualification.

    Basic Degree holders in BHMS/MBBS had been treating patients efficiently and still it continues. Then why they are debarred from teaching? This is injustice. Their capabilities could be extracted through a common test itself and efficient persons selected accordingly.

    Collect material evidence from every where, even from outside the country.

    File a suit, if our arguments are correct, else leave it.

    Please note that there is Law above everything in India. Govt. itself is not above it, is bound by law and procedures

    Please try to set it right.

    Thank you and Good Luck

  2. In the board meeting held on 02/07/2012 the KPSC decided to reject the proposal in the government letter no.6695/J2/12 H& FWD dated 30.03.12 uphelding what stipulated in GO(MS) No.233/85/1985/GAD Dated 27/06/1985
    to fill the vacancies reported prior to the pay revision order from the existing list, that is from those candidated who appeared in the examination conducted for the purpose so far.
    This is a lesson for us all, if we keep ‘mum’ others will exploit out of that.

  3. Subject: news regarding MD Homoeopathic entrance admission and fate of homoeopaths.
    This year MD Homoeopathic entrance result was published on april th and the applicants are waiting for the admission procedures. But this year the procedures are little slower than the previous years. Earlier years the result has been published in the month of march itself.
    By slowing down, did it ment to help any one?
    Four of this year top ranks
    1. Aruna Parvathy (rank 2)
    2. Soumya US (rank 6)
    3. Divya VKP( rank
    4. Shamna BN(rank 28)
    Were allready doing MD course and in final year at GHMC TVM.
    In previous years, its not possible for a final year MD student to join new batch of that year. Bcs thr date of course completion will be exactly same for the commencement of new batch. That means the admission procedure will be over before thr completion of thr course.
    Being an Homoeopath, they has to keep thr ethics. But here with out any ethics, they are forcing to delay the procedures of MD admission and to conduct thr final year exam as early as possible using thr influences. They are even getting ready to move it in to court too……that tim wil be sufficient for them.
    But the thing is, other innocent students future is on cruise. All this are litteraly for the matter of stipend.
    More over thr only max 20 seats in general merit
    Kerala MD Homoeopathy. The students from other states are also depending on our state. In each and every year thousands of homeopaths were passing out. But where is thr oppurtunities?
    For the last three, four years no postings has been made thr in Govt sector. The ‘Tutor post’ notification made in 2009 hadnt yet published its result. Now Kerala Govt has been asked psc to cancel that post and its conducted examnations. Few of the ongoing MD course students are also behind that, as they want to get placed as lecturer, by avoiding others.
    Then what will be the scope of Homeopathy and how all this Homoeopaths survive?
    Pls join us and protest against these ethicless behaviour of these idiots.

  4. The above direction by Government is against what stipulated in GO(MS) No.233/85/1985/GAD Dated 27/06/1985 and numerous Court decisions from Supreme Court and High Courts.

    The G.O. read above lays down among other things, that any change made in the qualifications, age or method of appointment etc. prescribed for a post after the issue of the notification by the Kerala Public Service Commission inviting applications in the Gazette in respect of that post will be given effect to for future selections only. Here the letter 6695/J2/2012/H&FWD issued on 30/03/2012 to KPSC on the basis of GO(P) No.48/2012/Fin dated 13/01/2012 is against the above Government Order because all the 21 vacancies arised before 13.01.2012, the date of the pay revision order.

    The Government have also issued clarification to Supreme Court regarding the scope and ambit of the above Government order that the changes in qualifications, method of appointment, age or other conditions of recruitment introduced after the issue of a notification for selection to the post by the Public Service Commission will be given effect to in future selections only, except in cases where the changes announced amount to concessions or exemptions to which persons already included in the ranked list as well as prospective candidates will be entitled and where the changes are of such a minor nature that they can be given effect without the necessity of upsetting any selection procedure under way.
    It is clearly foul play of some MDians that going to upset the whole process for a long time and no one is going to benefit form it.

  5. Actually the entry cadre as per CCH norms is Lecturer not the Assistant Professor and its qualification is BHMS with Experience not MD
