Nashik: Zilla Parishad employees and teachers have committed injustice against genuine disabled by producing fake disability certificates to get various concessions and facilities, job benefits and concession in transfer. Make inquiry of such employees, asked the resolution which was passed by office bearers and members in general meeting.
The MLA from outside district had come to Zilla Parishad and had made inquiry with chief executive officer Deepakkumar Meena about the provision made by Zilla Parishad for providing facilities and concessions to disabled, expenditure on the schemes related to disabled and production of fake disability certificate. The injustice against disabled has come to light with this, stated Shiv Sena group leader Dhanraj Mahale and demanded that administration should take action over this.
Dr. Atmaram Kumbharde asked deputy chief executive officer Rajesh Patil how many disabled are registered with gram panchayat department. In reply, Patil informed that 13,600 disabled in the district registered their names so far. Thereafter, Zilla Parishad member Yatin Kadam asked the CEO about number of disabled employees and teachers in Zilla Parishad. Many teachers and employees took fake disability certificates from Dhule and Nandurbar to get facilities. Probe such employees. How there is a sudden increase in number of disabled employees in the district, Kadam asked, while Kumbharde revealed that teachers and non-teaching staff got fake disability certificates from Dhule. 60% disability certificates are fake, he said. Teachers have got certificates on large scale to get benefits. The CEO should provide his attention to this and take action. Suspend those disabled officials who are staying at one place from many years. The resolution was being passed for this, he stated.
While hinting about action, CEO Meena said that disability certificates of those employees who produced them will be verified by the district civil surgeon and they will be sent thereafter to the education board for next action. Suresh Kamankar demanded to provide benefit of individual benefit schemes to disabled as per list. In addition, spend disabled welfare fund. Replying over this, the CEO informed that the fund will be spent by March end and asked that members should send proposals regarding names of disabled in their blocks.
