dated 18-2-2000

Employees having children with hearing impairment or
multiple disability may be given posting to their own
preferred linguistic Zone/State

 

1. The undersigned is directed to say that there has been a demand that an employed parent of a child suffering from hearing impairment or multiple disability may be given posting to their own, preferred linguistic zone or state where educational facility to their hearing impaired or multiple disable child exists and that too in the same language exists. This demand has been made on the ground that the disabled children may have opportunities of learning in one single Language, as these children cannot cope up with learning their subjects in more than one language, as a result of transfer of their parents from one State to. another


2. The matter has been examined: Considering that the facilities for medical care and education of children with hearing impairment or multiple disability may not be available at all Stations, such requests from the parents of a child suffering from hearing impairment or multiple disability, may as far as possible, be considered syrnpathctically. Where, however, this may not be possible, efforts may be made to accommodate such a Government servant in the same State to the extent possible.


3. All the Ministries/Departments, etc., are requested to bring these instructions to the notice of all the appointing authorities under their control.
