CHENNAI: The Madras High Court on Friday directed the Teachers Recruitment Board (TRB) to issue a fresh notification for filling up positions for post-graduate assistant physical education directors in the school education department that are reserved for the physically-challenged.

According to the PIL petitioner, the determination of eligibility for the posts as per degree of disability for different categories had not been done in a rational and scientific manner by the board.

Concurring with the view expressed in the petition, a division bench of Justices TS Sivagnanam and K Ravichandrabaabu directed the TRB to come up with rational criteria for physically-challenged persons while issuing a fresh notification to fill the posts.

The court had earlier stayed the recruitment process in June and then partly vacated it in August by allowing the board to fill vacancies after holding back four per cent for physically- challenged persons. Now, as the board has come up with a new percentage of disability as eligible criteria on a more rational basis, the court allowed the recruitment process to be carried out and disposed of the plea.
