If you are a differently abled male living in India chances are you will still not get all benefits given to differently abled persons in The Persons with Disabilities Act, 1995.
What it means is that now government may give women with less disability more job opportunities than men with more disabilities. As this is only at a policy stage today and the exact degree of benefits can’t be quantifies at this stage but this kind of policy will bring gender discrimination in an otherwise gender neutral Act.
This above point coupled with specific mention that all provisions to be women friendly –
makes it pertinent to think the WCD ministry is heading towards a policy of creating gender discrimination even for differently abled people making a living difficult for them.
The above will encourage and ensure that women own more land and property. This will even increase pressure on state exchequer and the burden is likely to passed on to the property owned by the males.
The above policy as mentioned in the National Women’s Policy will not only create undue disadvantage for the farmers’ collectives managed and owned by males but will make them non-competitive by selectively making them at a position of disadvantage.
When women will be given benefits like flexi work and affordable housing males in similar position even under the regime of equal pay for equal work will be deprived of the same resulting in them getting less net pay for same job. Same roles for males will be made difficult and more challenging as they need to go through the complete grind of the role and for making women’s life easier in same roles.
The dangerous proposition in this Policy is ensuring more women participation in important services like Civil Services, Judiciary and in CXO levels in corporate houses though quota and financial help. So now we can expect companies with more women CXOs to get more financial help from govt and thus making them discriminate against males in all promotions.Even if there is no competent woman for the position the provision of quota will ensure incompetent women are taken for these coveted roles.
The above policy changes soon to be made will not only create huge discrimination against males at all levels but will ensure that these men are selectively thrown out of the mainstream society by a structured approach driven by Ministry of Women and Child Development. Surely this has nothing to do with development and will create unnecessary gender hatred and huge imbalance in the society.
