Kerala set to make history, two disabled candidates to be posted as deputy collectors


The government of Kerala is all set to make history. The government is expected to announce the appointment of two disabled candidates to the post of deputy collectors.

Ajesh K, a visually impaired person from Payyannur, and Madhu K, who is mobility impaired, are the two candidates.

As per reports, the Kerala government may issue their posting orders today.

The two will become the first disabled candidates selected for the post of deputy collectors in the state.

This has become possible thorough the intervention of the Kerala Administrative Tribunal. The candidates' too have been fighting for justice since 2014.

Even after clearing the preliminaries, the final exams, and interviews for the posts of deputy collector, the rank list did not have any vacancies for disabled people.

The candidates' had then taken the matter to court.
