Ref: Railway Board’s letter No. E(NG)II/2009/RC-2/5 List dated 27.08.2009.
Shri S.K. Rungta, Chairman, National Confederation of the Blind has met CRB and represented that 1% reservation quota for Visually Handicapped persons is not being implemented in its true spirit in the Railways. In order to ascertain the position of implementation of reservation to persons with disabilities (PWDs) with reference to Visually Handicapped (VH), Railways are requested to furnish the position as per proforma in the Annexure.
Attention is drawn to this Ministry’s letter No. E(NG)II/2009/RC-2/5 List dated 27.08.2009, based on which Railway Board has circulated department-wise list of categories, where reservation for PWDs (VH) is to be provided. The Proforma, where details have been sought for, contain the same categories as mentioned in letter ibid. The position of your Railway may be furnished within 10 days as the next meeting with the Confederation is likely to be held in the last week of February, 2012.
