Social Organisation Opens Jobs Cell For The Differently-Abled In City

Pune: According to the 2001 Indian census, there are total 15.69 lakh physically-challenged persons in Maharashtra alone, comprising of 9.33 lakh male and 6.35 lakh female.

Though the figures are high, when it comes to employment, only around 1 per cent of physically-challenged people get employment opportunities.

“And most of the differently-abled persons from this one per cent are selfemployed,”
says Rahul Deshmukh, president, Snehankit Association. “That’s not all. The government’s three per cent reservation policy for the disabled is also being misused by persons who have very minor disability, such as missing finger and things like that. Those, who really need the reservation, do not get the benefits,” he pointed out, adding that totally disabled persons have failed to avail the benefit of the reservation policy.

Keeping this in mind, Snehankit Association, that works for the welfare of the visually-impaired, has decided to start a ‘disability employment cell’ on the occasion of World Disability Day on December 3. With the main aim of placing all kinds of differently-abled people, the cell will also be run by such persons.

“People have several misconceptions about hiring differently-abled persons. But they fail to understand that the attrition rate among disabled is very low. Also the costs of training spent on such persons turns out to be a huge investment,” says Deshmukh.

The cell has already placed one visually-disabled person in the accounts section of a city-based chemical manufacturing company. As of now, the employment cell has a vacancy for ten persons for a city-based corporate entity.

“We are starting our activities from December 3. We invite differently-abled persons to send in their resumes to us so that we can screen them and have further interviews,” said Deshmukh. Overall, there are various posts that can be occupied by the differently-abled persons, Deshmukh added.

For instance, posts such as industrial counselling, labour welfare officers, public relations officers, industrial social workers, voice processes in the BPO industry, liftmen, typists and telephone operators can be easily given to such persons.

Differently-abled persons can contact for further information.
