Forum for the disabled objects to notification
The Tamil Nadu Association for the Rights of All Types of Differently Abled and Caregivers (TARATDAC) has objected to the recent notification of the School Education Department relating to the three percent reservation.
The notification dated February 25, which deals with an appointment for the post of Assistant Elementary Education Officers, says that a candidate with a disability in only one of his/her limbs can be accommodated under the three percent reservation and candidates with disability of other nature would not be eligible.
The State Secretary of TARATDAC S. Namburajan said “While persons with disabilities can become judges, civil servants and go on to hold high positions of the State machinery, how can they discriminate people based on disability? There are visually challenged teachers too. This notification is only an attempt to restrict differently abled persons. This notification is certainly a violation of the Act.”
