PUDUCHERRY: Social Welfare Minister M Kandasamy said on Monday that private companies in the Union Territory too would be asked to implement 3 per cent
reservation in jobs for physically disabled. 

Presiding over a function organised by the department to distribute assistance to the disabled, he said a meeting of officials from private companies would
be called next month in this regard. 

Mr.Kandasamy also said Government departments that had not implemented the reservation would be asked to do so. He said discrepancies in the list of the
disabled would be removed and officials would conduct a check on everyone whose names had been included in the list.
