KARAcHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Wednesday appreciated the efforts made by Sindh Public Service Commission (SPSC) and other respondents regarding the appointment of a blind person in education and literacy department on disabled persons’ quota.

SHC appreciated chairman SPSC, OSD education department Mohammad Jameel Khan, focal person to chief secretary Saeed Ahmed Qureshi for their efforts in appointment of Nadeem Ahmed, who is blind by birth, on the post of lecturer in the education and literacy department.

He applied for the post of lecturer (BPS-17) in education and literacy department on the basis of 2 % quota of disabled persons.

He had requested the court to direct respondents to appoint him on merit.

On Wednesday’s hearing the court was told that Ahmed has been appointed on the post on 18th August 2015. The court appreciated the efforts made by the respondents and stated in its order that it would like to express the appreciation of the assistance provided by all the relevant authorities. The court said without efforts of all of them the matter most probably would have dragged indefinitely; since needful has been done the pending matter is disposed of.
