Driving is an art which requires one to be constantly aware of what’s happening around with all their senses active, for reflex action in case required.
Driver with lack of hearing may not make any difference with a normal one at Zero speed. However, just imagine a vehicle moving at 60 KMPH and has developed an unusual noise from engine which requires immediate attention!

Driving is a luxury not a right. I so hope people would take this more seriously. Not everyone should drive. You have to prove that you are qualified enough to do it.
Everyday I see young kids speeding away to glory and aunties struggling with their sarees while at the wheel. I wonder why for Indians obtaining a license never poses a problem.
Afaik, in US or UK anyone wishing to obtain a DL undergoes proper theoretical and practical exams. Why is this not implemented in India? Why does every Tom, Dick, Harry get to drive a car?
This particular case can not be used as a generalisation for all deaf people. The extent of deafness would be an important factor and perhaps a few road tests would throw up results which would clarify his road-fitness.
Let us not get emotional and lose all reason.
Of course the RTO is qualified to pass a judgment. This is part of their duties.
