The Delhi High Court
Has said that the government of. The city needs to make sure that 5% of the places in all schools and colleges are keep for students who need extra help. This is because of a law called the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act.
The court also said that Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University has to do the same thing and save seats for students who need special help.
The made this decision because someone complained that the university was not following the law and was not giving 5% of its places to students who need special help, which the law said they should do since 2016.
The court saw
that the university was already giving 5% of places to students who need special help in all its courses, so the court didn’t have to give more orders about that. However, the court said that the Delhi government and the university should try their best to fill these special places with students who have different kinds of special needs.
The court said, “Both the university and the government of the state have to make sure that all schools and colleges follow the law from the RPWD Act and give 5% of their places to students who need special help.” This decision was made not long ago.
In May, the court told the university to save special places for students who need extra help for the school year that is happening now. A group called “Justice For All,” which helps people, said that the university was only saving 3% of the places instead of 5% like the law said. They even said that the university was not doing what the court told it to do before. But later, the university said in a paper that they were really saving 5% of their places for students who need special help. After this, the court ended the case.
