The Sri Lanka Council for the Blind has been able to persuade the Ministry of Public Administration of Sri Lanka to remove clauses detrimental to PWDs in gazette notifications and ammend the scheme of recruitment. Furthermore, it has been decided that the Department of Labour Relations and Manpower Development will take over the responsibility of placing PWDs in jobs from the Ministry of Social Service and Social Welfare. This is good news for all PWDs in Sri Lanka. Now PWDs with the requisite qualitications will get the opportunity to get equal opportunity in getting a job. PWDs with no educational or professional qualifications will be trained and placed in jobs. The special ID for PWDs is also being processed these days and we hope it will become a reality soon.
