Govt to allocate 2pc job quota for differently abled

ISLAMABAD: Special Assistant to Prime Minister on Poverty Alleviation and Social Safety Division (PASSD) Dr Sania Nishtar has said government would allocate 2 per cent quota for differently abled persons in all government jobs.

She said Ehsaas was the government’s multi-sectoral and multi-stakeholder coordinated initiative–the biggest and boldest pro-poor programme ever launched in the country.

She further informed its objectives to address elite capture and make the government system work for equality of opportunity; provide effective and comprehensive safety nets for the marginalized and the vulnerable and create livelihoods and jobs for the poor, she added.

She said government would invest in people for human capital formation and also lift lagging areas.
