Implement GO: Association of disabled people (Advocacy & Lobbying) 12.10.21

Virudhunagar: The Tamil Nadu Association for the Rights of All Types of Differently Abled and Caregivers (TARATDAC) will conduct state-wide protests across the state on October 26 demanding the implementation of the differently-abled welfare department’s GO to government and private establishments to publish ‘Equal Opportunity Policy’ and providing 5% job opportunities to disabled people in private firms.

The TARATDAC decided to go ahead with the protest at a meeting held in Sattur on Monday as it’s been three months since the GO was passed. “The differently-abled welfare department commissioner has also written to the concerned officials to implement the GO within three months of issuing i.e. within October 7. But, at the ground level, meetings regarding implementation of the GO were held only in few districts,” said the members in a statement.
The members also resolved to demand for the Virudhunagar district administration to ensure that disability certificates are provided to differently-abled people in a smooth manner without any errors.
