    Hello,

    Before getting into the details,let me tell you the difference between Physically handicapped and orthopedically handicapped.

    Physically handicapped are those who have either got the disability through any of the two means either hereditary or through the environment eg. through some accident.



    On the other hand ,orthopedically handicapped are those who have some handicap related to their muscles or bones like your bones are too weak to enable you to lead a normal life or like it happens in polio or paralysis when your muscles stop moving its a precise term ,whereas, physical handicap is a wider term that we use for physical disabilities.


    So, you fall under PHYSICAL HANDICAPPED(PH) category.

    AND YOU WILL GET RESERVATION facilities
    IN FACT IN EVERY POST OF GOVERNMENT JOBS...

    Hello dude!

    Orthopadically handicapped means it includes bone diseases such as paget's disease and osteogenesis infecta, spinal cord injuries, nerve injuries etc. People with such problems generally have difficulty in walking. Such people having these problems generally come under orthopadically handicapped people.

    But if a person who lost his/her body parts like loosing legs or hands generally come under physically handicapped category. So this is the difference between physically handicapped and orthopadically handicapped. In Indian government, the candidates who are physically handicapped will get age relaxation in government jobs or exams. The physically handicapped candidates will get their upper age relaxable for 10 years. For suppose if the candidate's age is 33 years then he can apply for the government jobs up to 43 years.

    Regards.
