IDENTIFICATION OF POSTS

An Expert Committee was set up by the Ministry of Welfare under the Chairmanship of Shri.M.C.Narasimhan to identify the jobs which can be performed by various categories of physically handicapped persons without loss of productivity. The committee made in an depth study of the various jobs done in Government offices as well as Public Sector Undertakings and identified 1100 titles under Group C and D as suitable for the handicapped person along with the physical requirements for all these jobs. The Committee also identified keeping in view the physical requirement and functional classification of disability 416 posts in Group A & B in which preference will be given to physically handicapped person in the matter of recruitment. The list of these post in available in the Report of the Committee on identification of jobs submitted in 1986.

CALCULATION OF THE NUMBER OF VACANCIES

Although the recruitment of physically handicapped persons would be only against posts identified as suitable for them, while computing the vacancies to which the reservation would apply, the total number of vacancies occurring in the said Group would be taken into account i.e. the 3% shall have to be computed on the basis of vacancies occurring in both the identified and non-identified posts in Group C and Group D.

  1. All Heads of Departments shall maintain a separate 100 point REGISTER for this purpose, in which each cycle of 100 points shall be divided into three blocks, comprising the following points:
    Block & Register
    Block100 Point Register
    1st Blockpoint No.1 to point No.33
    2nd Blockpoint No.34 to Point No.67
    3rd Blockpoint No.68 to point No.100
  2. All the vacancies reported by the different appointing authorities will be entered in this Register for each Group of post (Group C or D). The account shall be maintained on year to year basis separately for Group C and Group D posts/services and will be closed annually. For each Block of vacancies, there shall be reserved one vacancy for the physically handicapped in post/grades identified as suitable for one or more of the categories of the physically handicapped i.e. when there are 33 vacancies in a Group, one vacancy is to be reserved for the physically handicapped. After computing all the vacancies and determining the reservation for the handicapped, block wise, in the manner indicated above, the Head of the Department will be required to distribute these reserved vacancies for the handicapped among different appointing authorities in the light of availability of vacancies, in the identified categories under the various appointing authorities. Care should also be taken 3% reservation for physically handicapped is, as far as possible, distributed equally among the three sub-categories i.e. the blind, the deaf and the appropriate identification. If the number of vacancies is such as to cover only one block or two, discretion as to which category of the handicapped should be accommodated first should best in the Head of the Department. He will decide this on the basis of the nature of the post, the level of presentation of the specific handicapped category in the concerned grade/post and the availability of candidate of a particular handicapped category, in so far as that can be ascertained.
  3. In the event of the reservation not being utilized in the same block in which it fell due, it shall be carried forward to the next block or blocks as the case may be in the same year. In such exigencies where the reservation could not be carried forward in the subsequent three recruitment years at the end of which the reservation shall be deemed to have lapsed.
  4. Mutual exchange in the event of non-availability of specific handicapped category is permissible.TO ILLUSTRATEIn an organization, the following vacancies in Group C in various categories of posts, as indicated against each, are to be filled :
    Vacancies in Group C
    Clerks40
    Steno Gr.D20
    Staff Car Driver15
    Sc.Assistant35
    Research Asstt.15
    Lab Assistant10
    Total No.of posts135
  5. Out of these posts, only Clerks, Steno Gr. D and Laboratory Assistant in the organization are identified as fit to be manned by the physically handicapped candidates, whereas the other categories are not identified. Both the Clerks and Steno Grade D are identified as suitable for Orthopaedically Handicapped (One arm, one leg) and blind and partially blind; whereas the post of Laboratory Assistant is identified for Orthopaedically handicapped (one arm, one leg) and deaf and partially deaf. In the present case, while working out the reservation for the physically handicapped, the total number of vacancies of 135 has to be taken into account (though the vacancies in the identified post are only 70). Accordingly, the number of vacancies reserved for the physically handicapped candidates would be 4. These vacancies would be distributed amongst the identified posts of Clerk, Steno Gr.D and Laboratory Assistant. The reservation points the physically handicapped will utilize will be on the rosters of these identified posts. This has been amplified in para 3.8 while distributing the vacancies among various categories of posts identified for physically Handicapped candidates, the Head of Department may ensure that this reservation is distributed equally among the three sub-categories of blind, deaf and orthopaedically handicapped consistent with appropriate identification for the posts. In this case, since the post of Lab is identified for Deaf and partially deaf also, the reservation for deaf can be utilized against this post and the remaining vacancies can be distributed between Clerks and Steno Grade D.
  6. The reservation worked out as above may be reported to the recruiting agency while making recruitment to the identified posts.
  7. The manner in which the physically handicapped persons so selected, are to be adjusted is as under.
  8. Reservation for SC/ST/OBCs may be called vertical reservation and the reservation for physically handicapped persons as horizontal reservation. Horizontal reservations cut across vertical reservation (in what is called interlocking reservation) and the persons selected against the physically handicapped quota have to be placed in the appropriate category; if he belongs to SC category, he will be placed in that quota and will utilize an SC Roster point and similarly if he belongs to General category, he will be placed in that category and will utilize a general category roster point. Similarly, if he belongs to OBC or ST category, he will utilize an OBC or an ST roster point.

FOR EXAMPLE: If in a given year there are 200 Group C vacancies, the reservation for SCs will be 30, for STs it will be 15, for OBCs it will be 54 and for General Category it will be 101. The vacancies reserved for physically handicapped will be calculated as per the procedure enumerated in para 3.3 above. The Vacancies for the physically handicapped that year will come to six and these will have to be distributed among the Visually handicapped, the Orthopaedically handicapped and the Hearing handicapped as explained in para 1.1 Once these six candidates are selected against the identified posts and it is seen that one belongs to the SC category, one to the ST category, two to the OBC category and two to the General Category, the one physically handicapped SC candidate will be adjusted against the 30 SC vacancies, the one physically handicapped ST candidate will be adjusted against the 15 ST vacancies, the two physically handicapped OBC candidates against the 54 OBC vacancies and two physically handicapped candidate against the 101 general category vacancies respectively. In other words, the appointment is to be made on the basis of the physical handicap and the adjustment in the roster is to be made according to the category to which the person belongs.

It will be seen that considerable flexibility is available to the Head of the Department in the matter of recruitment of physically handicapped against the posts reserved for them. It is for the Head of the Department to decide the category of persons who are to be adjusted and the identified vacant posts against which they are to be adjusted. It is, therefore, requested that the Heads of Departments should make special efforts to ensure that the vacancies reserved for the physically handicapped are worked out correctly and complete utilization of the reservation meant for the physically handicapped is effected.

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Reservation of Posts for the Physically handicapped persons in Group ‘C’ & ‘D’ posts/Services under the Central government -Clarifications

The undersigned is directed to refer to this department’s Office Memorandum No. 39016/6/77-Estt(C) dated 4.11.77 and office Memorandum No. 39016/20/800-Estt (C) dated 30.12.1980 (copies enclosed.) on the subject cited above and to say that in the last meeting of the Central advisory Committee on employment of handicapped persons held on 20.3.1984, a point was raised that jobs earmarked for one category of handicapped persons should not be transferred to another category of handicapped persons but should be carried forward for a period of three subsequent recruitment years. In this connection attention of the Ministry of Finance etc. is invited to this Department’s Memorandum referred to above where there is a provision of inter exchange of vacancies if (i) candidates belonging to a category of persons are not available or (ii) if the nature of vacancies in as office is such that a given category of persons cannot be employed.

The point raised in the Central Advisory Committee has been carefully considered. It is clarified that even if the Inter-se exchange of vacancies between the blind, the deaf and the orthopaedicallly handicapped candidates is allowed the vacancies reserved for one specified category of handicapped persons will continue to be reserved for them through carry forward of the vacancy to three subsequent recruitment years. For example, supposed the point 3 of the roster earmarked for the blind could not be filled by a blind candidate due to their non-availability or if the nature of vacancy in an office is such that a given category of persons cannot be employed. Therefore, even if it is exchanged with an orthopaedically handicapped candidate or deaf, the reservation for the blind will be carried forward to the subsequent recruitment years. The exercise of exchange and carry forward should, however, be repeated in every recruitment year. If the candidates belonging to the category for which the vacancy was originally reserved and carried forward are not available even after three subsequent recruitment years, such reservation would lapse automatically after the principle of exchange being applied in the third and find recruitment year of carry forward.

Further, if there is any carried forward reservation of Scheduled Castes, scheduled Tribes and handicapped persons brought forward from the previous years, then the older carried forward reservation belonging to any of the three categories should be adjusted first and the comparatively exceeds the 50% limit of reservations in a recruitment year as enunciated in this Department’s O.M No. 36012/3/78/-Estt. (SCT) dated 9.2.1982.

Ministry of Finance etc. are requested to bring these instructions to the notice of all appointing authorities under them.

Reservation on vacancies for the physically handicapped persons

Deptt. Of Personnel & A.R.

New Delhi, the 30th December 1980

OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Reservation on vacancies for the physically handicapped persons in Group “C” and ‘D’ posts under the Central Government.

The undersigned is directed to refer to the Department of Personnel & A.R.O.M.No.39016/6/77-Estt (C), dated the 4th November, 1977 regarding reservations for the physically handicapped persons in Group ‘C’ and Group ‘D’ posts to the extent indicated as below:

Reservation
Category% of Reservation
The Blind1 %
The Deaf1 %
The Orthopaedically handicapped1 %

The question of prescribing a roster for giving effect to the reservations for the physically handicapped persons has been considered. It has been decided that a continuous account of the vacancies arising in Group ‘C’ and group ‘D’ posts from year to year may be kept. Thus the 34th vacancy occurring in a particular recruitment year would be earmarked for the Blind, Deaf and the Orthopaedically handicapped respectively in a cycle of 100 vacancies. In case any of these vacancies happens to be reserved for the Scheduled Caste and Scheduled Tribe or Ex-servicemen the next clearly available vacancy should be reserved for the physically handicapped persons.

As already provided in O.M. of 4th November, 1977 referred to above, inter-se exchange of vacancies is permissible if candidates belonging to the particular category of persons are not available or if the nature of vacancy should be reserved for the physically handicapped persons.

It has also been provided in the said O.M. that if in any year, the vacancies reserved for these categories are not filled, the reservations should be carried over for a period of up to two recruitment years. It has now been decided that the reservations should be carried over for a period of up to three recruitment years instead of two years as at present. Any recruitment of the physically handicapped candidates will first be counted against the additional quota brought forward from previous years, if any, in their chronological order. If such candidates are not available for all the vacancies, the older vacancies carried forward should be filled first and the comparatively later vacancies carried forward should be further carried forward.

The physically handicapped persons are entitled to relaxation of upper age limit up to 10 years for purpose of appointment to Group ‘C’ and Group ‘D’ posts vide this Department’s O.M. No.15012/6/77-Estt (D) dated the 28.1.78 and 18.7.78.

As the Ministry of Finance etc., are aware the Recruitment Rules for every post have a Saving clause which provides that nothing to these Rules shall effect reservations, relaxation of age limit and other concessions required to be provided for all special categories of persons in accordance with the orders issued by the Central Government from time to time in this regard.

Instructions already exist regarding medical examination of Physically handicapped persons according to which cases of physically handicapped person are to be viewed with the utmost sympathy for medical examination. On nomination by Employment Exchange physically handicapped persons should not be subjected to the usual medical examination on first appointment and the question should be decided on the basis of the reports of the Medical Board attached to the special employment Exchanges for the Physically Handicapped.

It is also brought to the notice of the Ministry of Finance etc., That according to the instructions contained in this Department’s O.M.No.14034/1/80-Estt (D), dated the 30th October, 1980 a Group ‘C’ or a Group ‘D’ employees found medically unfit for the post he is holding and from which he is proposed to be discharged or has been discharged may, wherever practicable, be considered for another identical/equivalent post for which he may be found suitable against direct recruitment quota without insisting on the condition of appointment through the Employment Exchange/SSC.

For this purpose, his previous service under Central Government should be de-Exchange/SSC. For this purpose, his previous service under Central Government should be deducted from his actual age and if the resultant age does not exceed the prescribed maximum age limit by more than three years, should be deemed to satisfy the condition of upper age limit for appointment to the post in question under the Central Government. Further, in the case of Government servant retired on medical grounds, his son/daughter/near relative can be considered for appointment on compassionate ground if the family of the Govt. servant is in great distress after his premature retirement vide para 6 of this Department’s O.M.No.14014/1/77-Estt.(D) dated the 25th November, 1978.

Ministry of Finance etc., are requested to bring these instructions to the notice of all appointing authorities under them.
