Meghalaya cabinet approves creation of Medical Services Recruitment Board

The state Cabinet on Wednesday approved creation of a separate recruitment board to be known as the Meghalaya Medical Services Recruitment Board (MMSRB) for completing the process of filling up over 500 doctor posts.


Speaking to reporters, Chief Minister Conrad K Sangma said there is a huge backlog of vacancies in terms of 176 vacancies for specialists and 366 vacancies for doctors as the Meghalaya Public Services Commission (MPSC) has not been able to conduct interviews and necessary procedures since 2017.


“Of course Covid was there in between but in spite of that also because of other recruitment in different departments, the MPSC was not able to conduct the necessary recruitment processes and interviews in order to regularize and to ensure the procedure for interviews and selection are taking place for these over 500 posts of doctors that are there,” he said.


Sangma said it is not that doctors are not working but they are working under temporary basis or on the basis of 3Fs and the process of recruiting them has to be done in a fast manner so that proper services can be given to the people and hence the MMSRD has been created.


“Hence, a proper recruitment process must be conducted and our efforts would be that in the next 2-3 months we will try to ensure that all the recruitment processes for all these posts are completed through the MMSRB,” he added.
