A disability that motivates a person to work harder than before and shine in every aspect can never be a hurdle in the path of their success and thus they aren’t called disabled, rather they are differently-abled. And an initiative to help them in their journey has been taken by the Indian government which leaves a remarkable amendment to the judicial system of the nation.

This was possible after the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act 2016 was passed by the Parliament, reservation quota for people suffering from mental and physical disabilities and acid attack victims were being enacted according to the officials. Individuals with Autism mental illness intellectual disabilities and victims of acid attacks will now get a quota of 4% of the total number of vacancies available in Central government jobs in case of direct recruitment by the government officials.

Earlier this number was only reserved for 3% in the group A, B and C of the reservation categories. The Department of Personnel and Training recently ensured that all the central government departments reserve at least 1% of all the posts for the people including blind or vision-related sufferers, deaf and hard at hearing, locomotors disabilities like cerebral palsy, leprosy, dwarfism and muscular dystrophy.

Any discrimination against the employment of the disables as per the rules listed shall not be here be taken for granted as the department has asked all the government organizations to appoint ‘grievance redressal officers’ whose prime duty is to look after the complaints registered. Every complaint shall be taken into consideration within 2 months after its registration and an action would be taken against the same as assured by the department.

It seems that the authority has geared up in its functioning and have taken some of the vital matters seriously under consideration.
