If there be any disproportion with regard to height, weight and chest girth the candidate should be hospitalised for investigation and X-ray of the chest taken before the candidate is declared fit or not fit by the Board.

  (b)            However the minimum standards for height and chest girth without which candidates cannot be accepted are as follows:

   

================================================

                                                            Height              Chest girth                Expansion     

                                                                                fully expanded

3.         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 toes or other sides of the feet. He will stand erect without rigidity and the heels claves, buttocks and shoulders touching the standard; the chin will be depressed to bring the vertex of the head level under the horizontal bar and the height will be recorded in centimeters and parts of centimeters to halves.

4.         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 blade behind and lies in same horizontal plane when the tape is taken round the chest. The arms will then be lowered to hang loosely by the side and care will be taken that the shoulders are not thrown upwards or backwards so as to displace the tape. The candidate will then be directed to take a deep inspiration several time and the maximum expansion of the chest will be carefully noted and the minimum and maximum will then be recorded in centimeters, thus 84 – 89, 86 – 93, etc. In recording the measurements fraction of less than half a centimeter should not be noted.

N.B.     The height and chest of the candidate should be measured twice before coming to a final decision.

5.                  The candidate will also be weighed and his weight recorded in Kilograms fraction of half kilogram should not be noted.

6.         The candidate’s eye-sight will be tested in accordance with the following rules. The result of each test will be recorded.

            There shall be no limit for maximum naked eye vision but the naked eye vision of the candidate shall however, be recorded by the Medical Board or other medical authority in every case, as it will furnish the basic information in regard to the condition of the eye.

            The candidate will be examined with the apparatus and in accordance with the method prescribed by the Railway Board’s Standing Advisory Committee of Medical Officers, to determine his acuity of vision.

N.B.     No candidate will be accepted for appointment whose standard of vision does not come upto requirement specified below: -

Note : (2)        

Colour Vision:

            The testing of colour vision is compulsory and the result should be normal in respect of all candidates. Satisfactory colour vision constitutes recognition of signal red, green and yellow colours with ease and without hesitation. Both the Ishihara’s plates and Edridge’s Green Lantern shall be used for testing colour vision.

            Colour perception should be graded into higher and lower grades depending upon the size of the aperture in the lantern as described below: -

==================================================================

Grade                                                   Higher Grade of                       Lower Grade of

                                                            Colour Perception                    Colour Perception

3.  Time of exposure                                  5 seconds                                            5 seconds

==================================================================

            Higher grade of colour perception is essential for special Class Apprentices.

Note : (3)

            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.

Note :   (4)

            Night Blindness need not be tested as a routine, but only in special case. 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 test e.g. recording of visual acuity with reduced illumination or by making the candidate recognize various objects in a darkened rooms after he has been there for 20 to 30 minutes. Candidate’s own statements should not always be relied upon, but they should be given due consideration.

Note :   (5)

            Occular conditions other than visual acuity:

(a)    Any organic disease or a progressive refractive error which is likely to result in lowering the visual acuity should be considered as a disqualification.

(b)   Squint – The presence of binocular vision is essential. Squint even if the visual acuity is of the prescribed standard, should be considered as a disqualification.

(c)    One eyed persons – One eyed person will not be eligible for appointment.

Note :   (6)

            Contact Lenses:

            During the medical examination of the candidate, the use of contact lenses is not to be allowed. It is necessary that when conducting eye test the illumination of the type letters for distant vision should have an illumination of 15 feet candles.

Note :   (7)

            It shall be open to government to relax any one of the conditions in favour of any candidate for special reasons.

7.         Blood Pressure:

            The board will use its discretion regarding Blood Pressure.

            The 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 general rule any systolic system over 140 mm and diastolic over 90 mm should be regarded as suspicious and the candidate should be hospitalised 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 electracardiographic examination of heart and blood urea a clearance test should be done as a routine. The final decision as to fitness or otherwise of a candidate will however, rest with the Medical Board only.

            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 patients side in a more or less horizontal position. The arm should be freed from 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 about 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 well-heard clear sound change to soft muffled fading sounds, represents the diastolic pressure. The measurement 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. Rechecking, if necessary, should be done only a few minutes after complete deflation of the cuff. (Sometimes, as the cuff is deflated sound are heard at a certain level they may disappear as pressure falls and reappear at a still lower level. This Silent Gap may cause error in reading).

8.         The urine (passed in the presence of the examiner) should be examined and the result 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 the diabetes. If, except for the glycosuria the Board finds the candidate conforms to the standards of medical fitness require they may pass the candidate “fit subject to the glycosuria 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 Specialists 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.         A women candidate who as a result of tests is found to be pregnant of 12 weeks standing or over should be declared temporarily unfit till the confinement is over. She should be re-examined for a fitness certificate six weeks after the date of confinement subject to the production of a medical certificate of  fitness from a registered medical practitioner.

10.       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 hearing is defective the candidate should be got examined by an Ear Specialist, provided that, if the defect is of a temporary nature, remediable by operation but without the use of Hearing Aid, and provided further that the candidate has no progressive disease in the ear, he can be declared fit. The following are the guidelines for the medical examination authorities in this regard: -

            “The decision of the Chairman of the Central Standing Medical Board (conducting the medical examination of the concerned candidate) about the fitness of the candidate shall be final”.

            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 (a):            Candidates are warned that there is no right of appeal against the findings of 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 judgement in the decision of the first Medical Board, it is open to Government to allow an appeal to a second Medical Board, such evidence should be submitted within 15 days 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 judgement 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.

Note (b):            No appeal would be preferred after Appellate Medical Board and the decision of the Appellate Medical Board would be final.

Medical Board and their report.

   The following intimation is made for the guidance of the Medical Examiner:

1.         The standard of physical fitness to be adopted should make due allowance for the age and length of service, of any of the candidate concerned.

2.         No person will be deemed qualified for admission to the public service who shall not satisfy Government or the appointing authority as the case may be, that he has no disease, constitutional affliction or bodily infirmity unfitting him, or likely to unfit him for that service.

3.         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 the 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 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.

4.         A lady doctor will be co-opted as a member of the Medical Board whenever a woman candidate is to be examined.

5.         The report of the Medical Board should be treated as confidential.

6.         In case where a candidate is declared unfit for appointment in the Government Service. the grounds for rejection may be communicated by the appointing authority to the candidate in broad terms without giving minute details regarding the defects pointed out by the Medical Board.

7.         In cases where a Medical Board considers that 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.
