India: Court orders government to comply with 1995 Disability Act

Posted 22/6-10 at 19.28

The 1995 Disability Act created a three per cent quota for disabled people in government employment. The Bombay High Court today said if by June 30th the government did not fill all the existing vacancies in the posts reserved for disabled people, it would consider freezing all recruitment.

Furthermore, the Court ordered that the identification of new posts for disabled people must be completed by the end of July.

The judges said, "Authorities must be sensitive to the requirements of disabled people. They don't need your sympathy, but give them work."
