IIT Delhi: Need 40% disability for quota

The IIT Delhi on Monday, 2nd July, 2012 told the Delhi High Court that its medical board, constituted for IIT-JEE 2012, had suggested that the boy, who moved the court for a direction for his admission under the disability quota, did not meet the requisite criteria of 40 per cent permanent disability. Filing its reply before justice GS Sistani on the plea of 17 year-old Amit Kumar, a native of Bihar, the IIT said the petitioner was found with 18 per cent disability. "The Medical Board of IIT-JEE 2012, which examined the petitioner (Kumar) on 5th June, 2012, found only 18 per cent permanent disabilities."

IIT Delhi: Need 40% disability for quota

"The Medical Board concluded that he did not qualify for the physical disability quota as the requirement of having at least 40 percent disability was not met," the institute said. Countering the petitioner's claim based on the certificate issued by the Darbhanga (Bihar) Medical College Hospital, the IIT said the certificate was issued in 2005 and the doctors had also opined that his condition would improve after the operation was done. It was also alleged that the state government had not authorised the Darbhanga Hospital to issue disability certificate under the Disability Act.

The court asked the petitioner's counsel Ashok Aggarwal to submit the authorisation letter issued by the state government to the hospital by the next date of hearing. Kumar, in his petition, said the IIT has rejected his candidature and alleged the procedure (of medical test) adopted by IIT-Delhi, is absolutely illegal, unjustified and unwarranted in as much as the petitioner was already having a valid certificate certifying that he is suffering from 40 per cent disability.
