The Union government Tuesday earned accolades from the Supreme Court for its “commitment” and the “positive steps” taken to fill up posts meant for differently-abled persons.
A bench of Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice N V Ramana welcomed the steps being taken by the government to create vacancies and filling up the positions to provide three per cent quota to disabled people.
“In view of the compilation filed by the Solicitor General, it seems that there is an unequivocal and unambiguous commitment by the Union of India to fill up the posts,” said the bench, as it disposed of a contempt plea against the Central government.
