The Central government has given its nod for the Jawaharlal Institute of Postgraduate Medical Education and Research to carry out recruitment for 1281 new posts,  Director of JIPMER Dr T S Ravikumar said here on Thursday.

Speaking after a function to mark the beginning of the golden jubilee year of JIPMER, he said 660 new nurses, 75 new doctors, 200 postgraduate residents, fellows and nursing tutors and over 200 new posts for Grade B and C have been approved. JIPMER had requested for the sanction of 1,700 posts.

The JIPMER director said the vacancies for 490 new nurses would be advertised soon. Out of these, 420 would be recruited through tests while the rest would be filled through promotions.

A national level test would be held for recruiting doctors and nurses, he added.

Asked whether the local people would be preferred, he said steps would be taken to fill the posts with local people except for posts like doctors and nurses, which require special skills. The local aspirants for the posts would be absorbed in the outsourced jobs.

Dr Ravikumar said the external funding for research had increased from Rs1.75 crore to Rs20 crore.

He added that JIPMER has received four national level projects from the Indian Council for Medical Research.
