Kochi: The Kerala High Court has said that the appointments made at aided schools could be given approval if the school has followed reservation for the differently-abled.

Earlier, a single bench had ordered that approval would be given to appointments made by the aided managements after 18 November, 2018 only if schools have filled the posts reserved for the differently-abled.

The high court division bench comprising justices PB Suresh Kumar and CS Sudha issued the interim order on an appeal filed against the earlier order by school managers and teachers who got appointments.

The division bench stated that it cannot stay the single bench order, which is a continuation of the Acts enacted in 1995 and 2016 for reservation for differently-abled persons and the Supreme Court orders.

The government informed that there would be 4,700 vacancies by the next financial year and that there would be no qualified differently-abled persons to fill these vacancies.

Following this, the court stated that the appointments made by the schools would be given approval after they fill the vacancies reserved for the differently-abled persons. The court also said that this would be subject to the final decision in the appeal.
