3% reservation in govt jobs does no good to differently-abled persons

Recruiting Agencies Prefer Partially Handicapped Under Grab Of SRO 62

ABHINAV VERMA

Jammu, Feb 3:  Notwithstanding the existing provision of three percent reservation for them, majority of differently-abled persons in Jammu and Kashmir are being denied government jobs in the State under the grab of SRO 62 that provides for giving preference to ‘partially disabled’ candidates.
 Sources said that till date only sixty partially-disabled persons have got government jobs since the provision of reservation for the category was made in 1998.   In each category of the physical disability, the number of persons with complete disability is more as compared to those having partial disability. But the recruitment agencies are preferring partially disabled persons in reference to the government SRO 62 issued after two years  of the adoption of center’s ‘Equal Opportunities Protection of Rights and Full Participation Act’ in the year 1998 by the state.
 “The State government claims that it has appointed 10 deaf and dumb till date but in fact all of them are partially disabled,” sources said adding that among these there was none with total disability.   
 In a bid to protect the rights of differently-abled persons, the central government had passed Equal Opportunities Protection of Rights and Full Participation Act in 1995. The state government   implemented this act in state after passage of three years in year 1998, that too after 90 days long agitation of the blind, deaf and dumb, sources said.
 A member of Jammu and Kashmir Deaf and Dumb Association said: “In fact the genuine disabled persons are still deprived of their rights, including three percent reservation, as they  are not getting the benefit in wake of the SRO 62 issued by the government after adopting the central act.”
 He  alleged that only “blue-eyed” are given benefits while the benefits of reservation are still a dream for the deserving persons.
 Principal of Jammu and Kashmir Klyan Samaj Kender,  Roshan Bhan said that the Service Selection Board (SSB) has now set 10+2 qualification for disabled persons whereas schools has have been upgraded in 2000.  He said that in light of the new eligibility criteria, the candidates who passed before 2000 are being ignored and forced to be dependent on others.  
 He said after implementation of the act in 1998 in the state, the government had setup a commission in 2000 on whose recommendation it issued an SRO 62 for the identification of the disabled persons to provide the government jobs as per the three percent reservation.
