A 4% quota has been established by the Maharashtra government for the advancement of workers with disabilities. This quota would be used for cadres where direct recruitment accounts for less than 75% of the total. Based on the recommendations of the Seventh Pay Commission, the state cabinet also resolved to refund all unpaid wages to non-teaching staff members working at non-agricultural institutions.
Starting on July 1st and continuing for the next five years, these dues will be paid in five annual instalments. The Maharashtra state government became the first in the nation to establish such a department in December 2022 when it established the Divyang department specifically to ensure the protection of the rights and welfare of people with disabilities.
Women in the Open and Backward categories will not be required to provide non-creamy layer certifications for reserved posts, the Cabinet has determined. To provide a sustainable and consistent power supply for agricultural pumps, the Cabinet has also authorised a plan to convert 30% of farm feeders to solar energy under the “Chief Minister Solar Agriculture Feeder Scheme.”
The Maharashtra state administration has continued the national government’s efforts to help people with disabilities. The federal government required the distribution of UDID numbers for people with disabilities in March of this year in order to provide them access to different assistance programmes put out by the government. To protect their well-being, a number of governments recently gave out thousands of UDID cards to persons with impairments.
