The government has reported 3,566 positions in central government facilities as suitable for those with benchmark disabilities.
These sites have also been identified as being appropriate for new categories of people with disabilities, such as dwarfism, victims of acid attack, muscular dystrophy, autism spectrum disorder, intellectual disability, specific learning disability, mental illness, and multiple disability. The Department for the Empowerment of People with Disabilities on Jan. 4 reported 3,566 positions in central government facilities as eligible for people with benchmark disabilities (disability of 40 percent and more) under the Disability Rights Act of 2016.
The Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment said in a statement that this communication will expand the employment scope for people with benchmark disabilities in government institutions. A list of 2,973 positions identified as suitable for people with benchmark disabilities was last notified in 2013 in view of the 1995 repealed Act on People with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation). Compared to the previously reported list 593 new posts were added.
