OFFICE MEMORANDUM

Subject: Reservation for persons with disabilities- Computation of reservation - Implementation of the judgement of Hon'ble Supreme Court in the matter of Union of India & Anr. Vs. National Federation of Blind & Ors.

The undersigned is directed to refer to this Departments OM No.36035/3/2004-Estt.(Res) dated 29.12.2005, a copy of which is enclosed for ready reference, through which this Department had issued consolidated instructions regarding reservation for persons with disabilities. The instructions were in consonance with the provisions of the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunity, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995.

2. Para 13 of the Office Memorandum of 29.12.2005 provides that reservation for persons with disabilities in case of direct recruitment as well as promotion for Group C and Group D posts shall be computed on the basis of total number of vacancies occurring in Group C and Group D posts as the case may be in the establishment although the recruitment of the persons with disabilities would only be in the posts identified suitable for them. Para 14 of the said O.M. provides that Reservation for persons with disabilities in Group 'A' posts shall be computed on the basis of vacancies occurring in direct recruitment quota in all the identified Group 'A' posts in the establishment. The same method of computation applies for Group 'B' posts.

3. The Hon'ble Supreme Court in its judgement dated 8.10.2013 in the matter of Civil Appeal No.9096 of 2013 (arising out of SLP (Civil) No.7541 of 2009) titled Union of India & Anr. Vs. National Federation of Blind & Ors. has, inter-alia, held :

"Thus, after thoughtful consideration, we are of the view that the computation of reservation for persons with disabilities has to be computed in case of Group A, B, C and D posts in an identical manner viz., "computing 3% reservation on total number of vacancies in the cadre strength" which is the intention of the legislature."

4. The Hon'ble Supreme Court has, inter alia, directed that the following action be taken in order to ensure proper implementation of the reservation policy for the disabled and to protect their rights:-

(i) to issue an appropriate order modifying the O.M. dated 29.12.2005 and the subsequent O.Ms consistent with this Court's Order within three months from the date of passing of the judgement.

(ii) the "appropriate Government" to compute the number of vacancies available in all the "establishments" and further identify the posts for disabled persons within a period of three months from today and implement the same without default. 

(iii) the DoPT shall issue instructions to all the departments/public sector undertakings/Government companies declaring that the non observance of the scheme of reservation for persons with disabilities should be considered as an act of non-obedience and Nodal Officer in department/public sector undertakings/Government companies, responsible for the proper strict implementation of reservation for person with disabilities, be departmentally proceeded against for the default.

5. Keeping in view the directions of the Hon'ble Supreme Court, Para 14 of the OM dated 29.12.2005 is modified to the following extent: 

"Reservation for persons with disabilities in Group 'A' or Group 'B' posts shall be computed on the basis of total number of vacancies occurring in direct recruitment quota in all the Group A posts or Group 'B' posts respectively, in the cadre."

6. Other provisions of the OM viz. quantum of reservation, horizontality of reservation, effecting reservation and maintenance of rosters etc. would remain the same.

7. All the Ministries/Departments/Organisations of the Government of India are requested to compute the number of vacancies available in all the cadres under their control including attached offices, subordinate offices, public sector undertakings, Government companies, cantonment Board etc. in the aforesaid manner and further identify the posts for disabled persons within a period of three months from the date of the judgement of the Hon'ble Supreme Court (i.e. 8.10.2013) and implement the same without default.

8. This is for strict compliance in accordance with the directions of the Hon'ble Supreme Court in respect of all the Ministries/Departments including their Public Sector Undertakings/Government companies, Cantonment Boards etc. Non-observance of the provisions of reservation for persons with disabilities shall be considered as an act of disobedience and the Nodal Officer concerned in Department/Public Sector Undertaking/Government company, responsible for the proper strict implementation of reservation for person with disabilities, be departmentally proceeded against for the default.
