Govt to relax qualification for Divyangjan

By STAFF REPORTER

GUWAHATI, Dec 7 - Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal today met representatives of organisations of differently-abled and assured them of doing away with the eligibility criteria like mandatory job experience, computer experience and sports as desired qualification for Grade IV State government jobs.

The meeting also decided to relax the eligibility criteria considering the physical limitation to the divyangjans (persons with disabilities) and bring in parity in the socio-economic strata of the society.

The meeting, which was represented by office-bearers of Pratibondi Suraksha Sanstha Assam, Bikalanga Unnayan Parishad Assam, All Assam Dristihin Yuva Unnayan Parishad, and All Assam Pratibondi Rehabilitation Sanstha, contended that so far the prescribed job criteria have put them in a disadvantageous position in seeking government jobs and therefore sought the Chief Minister�s intervention.

The Chief Minister in turn asked the Social Welfare Department to do away with the three eligibility criteria for facilitating their absorption in Grade IV State government jobs.

The meeting also decided to build a guest house for divyangjans in Guwahati so that they can have good accommodation whenever they come to the city. Sonowal also asked the P&RD department to allot houses under the Prime Minister Awas Yojana, Grameen to persons with disabilities from the existing beneficiary list on priority basis.

Acknowledging the sporting acumen of differently-abled youth in the State, Sonowal asked the Social Welfare Department to provide fund for the All Assam Deaf and Dumb Sports Meet to be held in Tezpur. He also asked the department to take steps for the promotion of Indian sign language in the State.
