After four years, blind woman finally gets U.P.S.C. posting, but in a lower category!
D.N.I.S. News Network, India: Purnima Jain, a woman with visual impairment from Indore, cleared the Union Public Service Commission (U.P.S.C.) with distinction in 2008. But it took four years and an intervention from the Prime Minister of India for her to finally get a posting. But the discrimination is far from over.
The posting she has finally received is in the Indian Railway Personnel Services (I.R.P.S.) whereas she had qualified for the Indian Administrative Service (I.A.S.).
Jain is going to take up the I.R.P.S. position but has expressed her unhappiness at being denied a job that she deserved.
