Tamilnadu Governor Banwarilal Purohit has approved the 20 per cent reservation for Tamil medium candidates in the TNPSC examination.
The bill has been lying dormant for 8 months and was approved by the governor on Tuesday.
With the approval from the Governor, 20 per cent of the State government jobs will now be filled by candidates who had completed their education in the State language, Tamil.
Earlier an ordinance was passed by the State Government in giving preference to Tamil medium candidates in appointments through TNPSC.
The Tamil Medium Act 2010 came into force during DMK regime, and now after further amendment, the bill was sent to the Governor for approval.
