The Rights of Persons will Disabilities Act, 2016 was passed by the Indian Parliament to fulfil IndiaÂ’s obligations to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. The law identifies disability as an evolving and dynamic concept.
Recently, the Central Government exempted posts under the IPS from mandatory 4 per cent reservation for persons with disabilities in government jobs as it goes against the RPD Act. The government stated that Section 34 of the Act, which provides 4% reservation of government jobs for PwD, does not apply to all categories of posts in IPS, IRS etc.
