This he said while presiding over a meeting here in his office today.

 

Director DEPD Ghulam Nabi Nizamani, Advocate Shabbir Shah, Umair Ahmed and other stakeholders were also present in the meeting. He added, ‘The aim of establishing Five Percent Job Quota Implementation Cell is to protect the rights of the persons with disabilities in public and private sectors as a number of complaints are being received from certain quarters that five percent job quota for differently abled people, is not being implemented’. Syed Qassim Naveed Qamar said that Sindh was the only province that had increased job quota from two percent to five percent in public and private sectors for differently abled people, adding that we are also drafting rules for Implementation of the said policy.
