During the hearing, the state government stated that the remaining 50 per cent vacancies in the health department and all the newly created posts due to retirement, death etc. will be filled within six months. The next hearing of the petition is scheduled for August. In this regard, candidates from various parts including Kishore Bhaskarrao Khedkar from Chaklamba in Gevrai, Beed have filed a petition through adv Farooqui Mohammed Suhail. In February 2019, there was an advertisement for recruitment in the public health department. Applications were also called at the same time. The exams were postponed due to upcoming elections and the outbreak of covid in the state. On September 9, 2020, the Supreme Court granted stay on Maratha reservation.
