(v)(a) If any department considers that it is not possible to provide reservation in promotions for any category of Persons with Disabilities, keeping in view the nature of duties to be performed by the employees in that particular department, the department may seek partial or full exemption from such reservation in promotions, however such exemption or modification shall be decided by an Inter-Departmental Committee as specified in the G.O. 6th read above;
(b) Departments who wish to seek exemptions may do so within (90)days from the date of issue of these orders during which period the Rule of Reservation shall not apply to such departments for the posts identified by them for exemption. The orders issued by the Committee thereafter shall be final and further action taken accordingly.
(vi) While preparing the panels of eligible candidates for promotion, the names of eligible disabled employees from the feeder category have to be shown against the roster points earmarked for them irrespective of their seniority position in the feeder category.
However, if a disabled employee gets higher place in the eligible candidates list by virtue of their seniority in the feeder category he/she need not be adjusted in a lower position, which is earmarked for a disabled employee as per the roster system. Such roster point has to be filled up by moving up a disabled employee who is below in the seniority list in the feeder category. Filling up the roster points shall continue until the required percentage of disabled candidates is obtained.
Once the required percentage is obtained by taking into account the candidate who are found in the list of the candidates fit for promotion on account of their seniority in the feeder category and those who are moved up to fill up the required roster point, further adjustment of disabled employees against the roster points has to be stopped. Unutilized roster points after the required disabled employee’s percentage is met shall lapse.
(vii) If required number of disabled employees is not available in the feeder category, the vacancies earmarked for disabled employees according to the roster will be carried forward as per orders issued from time to time as in case of Rule of reservation in promotion for SC/ST persons.
3.All Departments of Secretariat and Heads of Departments concerned are requested to issue necessary amendments to the A.P. State & Subordinate Service Rules 1996 and Spl.
