  2. Recently i read the notification and found that many of the posts have medical standards C1 and A2 written on it. Means you have to qualify for the medical examination of this standards.

    Generally C1 standard means your both eye's have the vision of 6/9 with or without correction. So anyone having eyeside problem and wear glasses to see like a common man can fit for the post and apply for it.

    But in A1 standard means you have the vision of 6/6 or 6/9 without glasses. So only those person having negligible eyeside problem only can fit for the post. ( 6/9 approximately equal to +/- 0.25).

    Considering the post i found that only for traffic apprentice and clerk posts A1 standard persons are illegible to apply.
    where there are vast numbers of posts like Assistant station master(5942 posts) and goods guard(7591 posts) etc. in the C1 standard .

    Anyone having eye side problem can only apply for only for 20 percent of the post. Now a days everyone having some eyeside problems due to the environment factors and polution level so this type of medical standards should be omitted because these people can see with the help of correction glass or lens. but can not apply for it .
