Supernumerary Seats for Disabled in Hp university 2

Shimla- Himachal Pradesh University, in a first in Northern India, has decided to create one supernumerary seat in all teaching departments in M.Phil and Ph.D for persons with disabilities from next academic session.

This decision was taken in the meeting of Executive Council (EC), which is decision making body of the university.

Member of the Executive Council and Nodal officer for Disability Affairs Prof. Ajai Srivastava explained the background of the matter in the meeting.

He said 5 % reservation for the disabled students was implemented up to Post Graduate level as normally there are 40 seats in a class. But problems arise in Ph.D and M.Phil where seats are less than 20 and it becomes difficult to calculate the percentage of reservation in seats. The High Court had stopped the running roster in admissions for the disabled. 

The Disabled Students and Youth Association (DSYA) has also welcomed this decision of the varsity administration The convener of DSYA, Mukesh Kumar, thanked the varsity administration and Ajai Shrivastva for their efforts to facilitate specially-abled students 

In the last meeting of EC on November 23, the issue to create supernumerary seats for the disabled students was raised by Ajai Srivastava and the EC had appointed a committee comprising him and Prof. Nagesh Thakur, Prof. Arvind Bhatt and the Registrar to make a recommendation on the issue.

The report of the committee was presented in today’s meeting which was further explained by Ajai Srivastava. The EC unanimously decided to create the supernumerary seat in each teaching department. 

On the other hand, DSYA, Himachal Pradesh, had recently approached the Governor over the non-implementation of the HP High Court orders regarding five percent reservation for disabled students.

The Association alleges that the Registrar, HPU, Ghanshyam Chand, disregarded orders of the court to reserve five percent seats for the disabled students during admissions. He went on with admissions for the session 2019-20 without implementing the order in any of the courses, DSYA alleges. The disabled students were also not given this reservation while allotting hostel facility.

A visually impaired student, Indu Kumari, native of Chamba, had filed a PIL, while hearing this petition on November 5, 2018, the court had directed all institutions of higher education to reserve five percent seats for the disabled students.

The Association has also raised issues regarding a lack of basic facilities in the only accessible library. The Association had alleged that the library doesn’t have a toilet and students, especially visually impaired girls are facing huge inconvenience due to it.

सोशल मीडिया पर इस तरह की हेडलाइन चल रही हैं। इसे पढ़कर ऐसा लगता है जैसे बच्चे पहली जुलाई से स्कूल जाएंगे। इस तरह का प्रचार मिस्लीडिंग है। बच्चों के स्कूल जाने के बारे में अभी कोई निर्णय नहीं है।
