Fill up vacancies for disabled by June 30, HC tells govt
Mumbai: The Bombay High Court today said if
the government did not fill all the existing vacancies in the
posts reserved for disabled by June 30, it would consider
freezing the recruitment even in the general category.
The division bench of acting Chief Justice J N Patel and
Justice S C Dharmadhikari, which was hearing PILs filed by
National Association for Blind and others, also directed that
identification of new posts -- which can be reserved for
disabled -- must be completed by July 30.
The PILs were filed three years ago, seeking
implementation of Disability Act of 1995, which created a
three per cent quota for those with handicaps.
"Authorities must be sensitive to the requirements of
the disabled... They don`t need your sympathy, but give them
work," the bench said.
Some 600 posts reserved for disabled were yet to be
filled, the petitioners told the court.
