Interesting Indian Psychiatric Disability Employment Case

See this article from the Times of India. It begins:

Giving a boost to the rights of the mentally ill, the Bombay high court has ruled that employees who develop mental ailments cannot be terminated from service on that basis.

Upholding Section 47 of the Disability Act which deals with non-discrimination, a bench of Justices A P Shah and D Y Chandrachud ruled that the authorities should either shift the employee concerned to another post with the same payscale and service benefits or create a supernumerary post until a suitable post is available.
