HC orders 3% Vidya Sahayak seats for disabled people

The Gujarat high court (HC) has asked the state government not to fill three per cent of total posts of Vidya Sahayak for the physically challenged people.

The Blind People's Association (BPA) had filed a PIL challenging the state government's decision of not keeping three per cent of posts reserved for physically challenged and visually challenged persons as per the provisions of the Persons with Disabilities (equal opportunities, protection of rights and full participation) Act, 1995.

BPA moved HC contending that the state government was denying teacher's jobs to physically handicap persons claiming that there are various tasks that cannot be properly performed by challenged people. HC sought explanation from the government. However, the state government did not submit its reply on various pretexts and tried to skirt the issue.
