KARACHI - Karachi Mayor Waseem Akhtar said on Thursday that the job quota for the disabled would be strictly implemented in KMC and only those who deserved to be appointed on such posts would be inducted.

“Initially, applications from disabled contractual employees of KMC have been invited to fill the available vacant posts from BPS-1 to BPS-15 in different departments,” he added.

The regularisation of disabled contractual employees would be made transparent and impartial to give the right person the due right. “This would enable disabled persons, working in different departments of KMC on contractual basis, to perform their duties more honestly and sincerely and serve the city in an excellent manner,” he hoped.

On the directives of the mayor, the HRM Department has issued letter for invitation of applications from disabled contractual employees of KMC within 15 days along with the certificate of disability from the concerned department or institution and other documents which would be assessed by the committee constituted for this purpose and this committee would have the right to accept or reject any application without offering any explanations.

The applications would be submitted in the office of the senior director HRM, 2nd Floor, KMC Building, MA Jinnah Road Karachi. The mayor has directed the departmental heads to ensure that all disabled contractual employees have submitted their applications with relevant documents in HRM Department within the stipulated time period.
