U.G.C. to fill up posts reserved for disabled people by the end of financial year

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: Educational bodies sure seem to be getting on the wrong side of the Delhi High Court. First, Kendriya Vidyalayas were pulled up for not appointing special education teachers for their disabled students and now University Grants Commission (U.G.C.) has been warned that if it does not fill up teaching posts reserved for people with disabilities, punitive action will be taken. U.G.C. has taken a serious note of the Court’s direction and has given an assurance that all vacancies in respect of three percent reservation for disabled persons shall be filled up latest by March 31, 2010. Universities and Colleges have in the past failed to appoint disabled persons although mandated by the Disability Act of 1995.
