The Rajaratnam stadium at Egmore here was buzzing with activity, with the commencement of certificate verification, height measurement and physical endurance test.
After the verification process was over, the candidates were put through a series of physical tests and athletic events.
Some of them could not measure up to the endurance tests, especially in the longer running events.
In an informal chat with presspersons, R. Rajagopalan, Chairman, Tamil Nadu Uniformed Services Recruitment Board, said a total of 6,640 applicants were found eligible, including 568 departmental candidates, and they would take the test over the next five days.
While a written test for the qualifying candidates was tentatively scheduled for August 31, the interview date would be announced later, he said, emphasising that the entire process "will be totally transparent".
On a board proposal, the State Government decided that the physical efficiency test (PET) would not be a qualifying test.
But the marks obtained in PET would be considered for selection.
Once the recruitment process was over, there would be enough SIs to be posted in all-women police stations, Dr. Rajagopalan said.
The earlier selection of women SIs in the State, for 300 posts, was held in 1997-98.
