Persons Studied in Tamil Medium (PSTM) Certificate is not Necessary - Honourable High Court

As per a government order, G.O Ms.No.145 P & AR (S) Department dated 30.09.2010, the Tamilnadu Government provides 20% reservation in government jobs for Persons Studied in Tamil Medium (PSTM) candidates.  

Previously, the government recruitment agencies like TNPSC and TRB have instructed the candidates to  submit a PSTM certificate (issued by Head of the Institution where the candidate studied their eligibility course)  in prescribed format during the  time of certificate verification.  

Now the Honourable High Court has ordered that the candidates need not submit a seperate PSTM Certifate to avail the PSTM reservation.

In the Government order published in September 2010, there is no mention about language of writing examination, only you should have studied the qualification in Tamil Medium.
