The Supreme Court passed the order while hearing a plea challenging the Center’s August 18, 2021 notice on the grounds that it infringes all categories of posts under the IPS, Delhi, Daman and Diu, Dadar and Nagar Haveli , granted a “blanket exemption”. Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Lakshadweep Police Service (DANIPS) and IRPFS out of the scope of the reservation to be provided under these.

Judges AM Khanwilkar and AS Oka have been informed by Attorney General KK Venugopal that the government would like time to file an affidavit of counter-affidavit on the matter.

Attorney General Tushar Mehta told the bank that it would take two weeks to file the affidavit.
Lead Counsel Arvind Datar, who acted for the petitioner’s National Platform for Disability Rights, said the exams were over and some of those individuals had passed.

Datar claimed they had to submit their preferences by the evening of March 24, the closing date, and said she wanted to extend the deadline to do so by a week or two since the selection process is already underway.

He said the petitioner and similarly placed persons may be eligible to submit their claim form to the UPSC and their claims may be considered subject to the outcome of the case.

“We believe this request is fair and reasonable. Accordingly, we instruct the authorities, in particular the Secretary-General, the Union Civil Service Commission, to accept paper copies of the applications of the candidates concerned, such as petitioners and similarly placed persons, if they are submitted physically or by courier on or before April 1, 2022 will be the office of the Secretary-General of the Union Civil Service Commission before 4 p.m.,” the bank said.

Applications received after 4pm would be considered invalid applications.

The Supreme Court also made it clear that its injunction is in no way intended to halt the ongoing selection process.

It said the application submitted by the petitioner or similarly placed within the deadline would be processed pending the outcome of the petition before him.

The bank released the matter for hearing on April 18.

During the hearing, Datar said there are many people with disabilities who have passed written exams and are now required to fill out forms and state what they want in the central public services – IAS, IPS, IFS, etc.

“Many of our members passed the main exams,” he said, adding that many of them had not been able to fill out the forms until last night.

The plea in Apex Court alleges that no publicly available information is available to determine the grounds for granting a blanket exemption from the notification.

“It is submitted that the contested decision granting blanket exemptions for all posts in the IPS, DANIPS and IRPFS is unconstitutional, violates the law and is not legally tenable for the following reasons: Exclusion of persons with disabilities from the occupation even of the Administration and other non-combat posts in the IPS, DANIPS AND IRPFS by the contested notification is manifestly arbitrary,” she claimed.

The petition has requested that the notification be lifted to the extent that it grants a blanket exemption from granting a reservation for persons with disabilities in the IPS, DANIPS and IRPFS.

It has also requested direction to the Department of Empowerment for Persons with Disabilities to reserve suitable positions for persons with disabilities in the IPS, DANIPS and IRPFS.
