With a large number of government employees seeking exemption from election duty on medical ground, the Kendrapara district administration has ordered health check-up of those employees, an official said Friday.
"We have ordered health check-up of people who are deputed on poll duty but have sought exemption from it on medical ground. As large number of applications reached us seeking exemption, the administration has been compelled to conduct health check up," said Kendrapara Collector, Dasarathi Satpathy.
He said the objective of the health check-up is to gauge the genuineness of government employees seeking exemption from election duty on medical ground.
On March 30, those seeking exemption from poll duty have been directed to appear before a medical board comprising doctors of district headquarters hospital, the collector said.
If the medical board certifies the employee unfit to do poll duty, then the applicant would be exempted from election duty, Satpathy said.
