"Recruitment of Persons with disabilities from open market - qualification of scribes- regarding.
Attention is invited to para 2 (ii)(b) of this Ministry’s letter of even number dated 17/09/2007 regarding guidelines for providing concessions/facilities including scribes to persons with disabilities (PWDs), while conducting examination for their recruitment from open market.
Pursuant to advice of the Court of Chief Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities, in Case No. 389/1041/2013 dated 13/9/2013 that criteria like educational qualification, marks secured, age or other such restriction for the scribe should not be fixed and instead, the invigilation system should be strengthened so that the candidates using scribe do not indulge in malpractices like copying and cheating during the examination, it has been decided by the Board to delete para 2 (ii)(b) of this Ministry’s letter of even number dated 17/09/2007.
Further, where recruitment notices have already been published, the recruiting agency may also issue corrigendum, bringing this fact to the notice of all concerned".
