Covai Post Network

The Madurai Bench of Madras High Court has observed that differently abled people should be given a chance for employment and should not be deprived of an opportunity on the basis of erroneous advertisements.

The observation was made on Tuesday on a petition of a woman from Nagercoil with 40 per cent visual impairment. She sought permission for appointment to the post of laboratory assistant and had secured the required marks under the special category but was not considered for the post.

The State said those appointed would have to dealt with chemicals and fragile apparatus and visually impaired persons would not be eligible.

Justice S Vaidyanathan said the petitioner could not be granted the post and also not demand the post as a matter of right. But, she should be considered for other posts if she met the eligibility criteria. Meritorious candidates should be given an opportunity; the court said while disposing of the petition.
