New Delhi, March 8 (IANS) The Delhi High Court has asked the Delhi 
government to
consider relaxing rules for blind candidates appearing in job-oriented
competitive examinations.
A division bench of Justices T.S. Thakur and Aruna Suresh Friday asked the
government to treat visually handicapped applicants with more sensitivity.
The court was hearing a public interest petition (PIL) filed by the Blind
Persons Association of India seeking relaxation of procedures for visually
challenged students appearing in various job-related examinations across the
country.
It directed the Delhi Subordinate Services Selection Board to examine the
association's representative and also consider such applicants' difficulties.
