Hi sir,
 
 
 
I got Traffic Apprentice post in CEN 03/2012 and allocated to Salem division.
 
For TA, medical standard is A-2.
 
But unfortunately I was not able to clear my medical as I had some vision problem.
 
Without knowing I went for treatment and attended Re-medical. But they unfitted me in re-medical also.
 
Is there any possibility to get another post, since that exam was conducted for all 7 categories.
 
I am eligible for 4 categories out of these 7.
 
Can you please guide me how to proceed on that?
 
 
 
Thanks.
