Reservation of persons with benchmark disability in India
Rights had been given to everyone like minorities groups or any backward
castes when we got independence but everyone forgot about the disabled groups.
Everything in the constitution was written for everyone but not for disabled
groups, so they had to fight for a long way to get their rights,so in 1995 they
got the recognition for themselves and some rights were granted to them.
In India there had been made certain reservations for the people who come under
disabled people are given certain advantages in government fields and are given
certain kinds of jobs and benefits so that they can stand economically and can
take part in governmental works and can live their life peacefully and equally
like everyone else. For the disabled people there is a governmental criteria
which states that the benefit of these reservations will only be given to the
people who are atleast 40% disabled.
But in India it is only in written form and has not been checked and practiced
from the years it had been made .So the point is when influential people like
leaders do practice nepotism on jobs so how will the people belonging to groups
will grow ,In India there are certain exams in which disabled people are not
taken like PCS or UPSC etc as the influential people think the disable people
cant do any work as they mean disability is equal to incapability and performs
functions of nepotism or give illegal jobs.
An RTI was filed in the recent times which stated that rights of the disability
groups have been blocked, proper jobs and benefit had not been given to them
since it was last checked ,later on the court passed order to grant the
rights. Later rights were given, but the thing is when a given percentage of
seats are reserved why they are not given the answer for this is nepotism of the
influential leaders. They suppress the rights or jobs of the disable groups.
In India equality was the major subject after independence and our thinkers made
articles on it that is right to equality(14-18)and no discrimination articles in
our constitution but the people belonging to the disabled sections got their
rights very late and they had to struggle a lot to get them.But now also when
the rules are made still their rights are suppressed in either way or the other.
There were certain laws which were made for the protection of disable people in
1995 to make reservation injobs and benefit them with some representation
quotas. For them 3% seats had been reserved and 21 types of disabilities had been
recognized by the government for example –blindness, low vision, mental illness
etc.I above added a picture which also states that no graph representation was
made for the disabled groups.Award Winning Article Is Written By: Mr.Ashir Gulati
