Medical check-up exposes inspector-selection scam

The Karnataka Public Service Commission (KPSC) has landed in a mess again. Medical check-up of candidates selected for the post of Motor Vehicle Inspectors (MVIs) has revealed glaring discrepancies in the selection process.

At least 15 of the 75 candidates, who underwent medical tests on Monday and Tuesday, have failed to pass the required physical standards. This number is likely to go up as 70 more candidates are yet to take the test on Wednesday.

On March 18, KPSC published a provisional list of 145 candidates selected as MVIs. The list was subject to a court judgment, since the selection process had been challenged.

The controversy erupted when the government decided to amend the Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, to frame rules for selection. Even as the case was being heard, KPSC published a list of candidates. This was challenged in court on the grounds that the list contained names of candidates whose applications had been rejected due to reasons like non-meeting of physical standards, non-possession of driving licence, etc. It was alleged that at least 30 candidates had produced fake medical certificates to prove they met the required physical standards.

The department wanted to complete recruitment because of the shortage of inspectors. Since many issues had been challenged in court, the department decided to conduct a detailed medical checkup of all selected candidates at Sanjay Gandhi Hospital.


26 candidates came; 4 failed to meet the minimum height requirement ; 2 had colour blindness Entire process video-recorded and candidate's signature taken on medical report


Transport commissioner Bhaskar Rao monitored the medical check-up and said reports had been kept in sealed covers. "If someone challenges this process in court, then we'll produce both video evidence and the medical reports,'' he said.
