ISLAMABAD: Serious lapses have been reported over appointments of special (disabled) persons to governmental posts, primarily in Aiwan-e-Sadr, Election Commission of Pakistan, defence ministry, Cabinet secretariat and foreign ministry.

Documents available with reporter quote sources from cabinet secretariat that there has been no implementation of 2% quota allocated for employment of disabled persons in such 37 divisions and ministries as Privatization, Housing, information and broadcasting, , IT and others.

Such institutions as Narcotics , Accountant General of Pakistan, economic statistics, tele-communications, Lok Virsa , Postal services and others are also lagging in implementing this 2% employment quota for disabled.
