Cabinet decides to treat disabled athletes on par with non-disabled athletes

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: There is good news for disabled athletes, who are otherwise treated as poor cousins of non-disabled sportspersons in India. The Union Cabinet has decided that disabled athletes will be treated on par with non-disabled athletes in service matters if they are in Government employment.

This decision was taken as a partof the Government’s move to give out of turn promotions to athletes employed in Government jobs or in public sector units for winning medals for the country in international events such as Olympics, World Championships and Asian Games.

All such sportspersons will now be entitled to 3 out of turn promotions.
