Panaji: Disability Rights Association of Goa (DRAG) has condemned that state government has not reserved posts for differently abled in its vacancies advertised through Goa Human Resource Development Corporation.

DRAG President Avelino D’Souza, in a letter to State Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities, has said that Goa Human Resources Development Corporation has advertised 750 posts in Government Departments on contract basis but not a single post has been reserved for persons with disability although the posts advertised are identified suitable for persons with disability.

“You are aware that the Goa Human Resources Development Corporation is a Special Purpose Vehicle of the Government to provide jobs to Goans in Government Service and first preference in Government jobs is provided to those employed by the Corporation,” the letter reads.

“The Corporation by not reserving four per cent of their jobs for persons with disability as mandated under Section 34 of the Rights of Persons with Disability Act 2016 has violated the provisions of the Act and  denied 30 persons with disability gainful employment in Government Service through preference in appointments.”

“Hence we request you to direct the Goa Human Resources Corporation to reserve 4% of their posts in the above advertisement for persons with disability. We also request you to direct the Corporation to fill up their backlog vacancies of persons with disability and to reserve 4% of the posts advertised in future for persons with disability.”
