3% quota must for disabled in all government jobs including IAS: Supreme Court

The Supreme Court today held that three per cent reservation for differently-abled persons be given in all category of government jobs including in appointments and promotions to IAS while pulling up the Centre for "frustrating" the very purpose of empowering legislation by opposing it. 

A bench headed by Chief Justice R M Lodha said the disabled persons have not got their due in the last 19 years after framing of the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, which was passed in 1995. 

Additional Solicitor General Pinky Anand, appearing for the Centre, contended that reservation cannot be given in case of promotion to Group A and Group B officers category as it is not a case of appointment. 

The bench, however, observed that appointment is a broader concept and the Centre is giving a narrow interpretation of it. 

"You are frustating the very reservation policy and cause of class for which Parliament passed the law," the bench said. 

"For the last 19 years it is not being implemented and the class, for which the legislation was made, had not got benefited as it should have," the bench said. 

The court dismissed the petition of Centre challenging order of  Bombay High Court which had directed the Centre and the Union Public Service Commission to implement a 3 per cent quota in direct recruitments and promotions for the disabled in the IAS.

Sub: -  Declaration of assets and liabilities by Govt. Employees - exhibiting the details of movable assets in the website - regarding.

All the Central Govt. employees, as per the latest order of the Department of Personnel & Training (DOP&T) have to declare their assets and liabilities, both movable and immovable, as well as their spouses and dependents latest by 15th December 2014. All these information would be then be put up by the respective ministries on their website accessible to everyone.

A large number of Central Govt. Employees have expressed their fear that putting up details of movable assets such as jewellery and cash in hand and bank would pose a security threat to them and their dependents, leave their children vulnerable to kidnapping and ransom demands.
There are various sources the Government employees would have accumulated wealth such as gift from parents, grandparents property, self-earning, wife-side property, or children’s contribution etc. Putting this information in the public domain would leave them and their family members vulnerable.
It is therefore requested that necessary action may be taken in this regard, so that all such information as stated above shall not be displayed on public domain.
                                                                                                        Yours faithfully,
