The candidates can fill the applications at the Directorate of Health and Family Welfare Services by December 17. The seats will be provided to the candidates under the scheme announced by the Union Health Minister Harsh Vardhan last month. The scheme was announced to aim at honoring the noble contribution made by Covid-19 warriors who have lost their lives due to the infection or died accidentally on account of Covid-19-related duty.
