Chennai sources stated that female nurses from Nilgiris and Thiruvallur districts have approached the Madras high court to quash an order issued by the Health and Family Welfare department in so far as it changes uniform for female nurses served below 10 years is concerned and consequently direct the authorities to give option to them to wear half sleeve Chudidhar top and white bottom as a uniform.

 


Meanwhile Justice R.Mahadevan before whom the petition filed by D.C.Indira from Nilgiris District and Shahila Begam from Thiruvallur district came up for hearing, ordered notice to the state government and the Committee for Change of Uniform. Reportedly Saseetharan said the government had divided four categories of female nurses based on their years of service. Apparently the nurses who put in below 10 years service in majority, studied from private medication institutions and appointed only from the year 2015.

Moreover under the first category of nurses i.e., service up to 10 years, all age group nurses were working.
