In 1998, during its corporate research study, NCPEDP came to the shocking truth that only about 1 lakh disabled people have been able to get employment in multinational companies in the last 40 years. It was surprising to note that multinational companies, who follow strict quotas and laws for employing People with Disabilities in other countries, had employed the least number of People with Disabilities in India.
The study revealed that the overall percentage of employees with disability was only 0.4% with 0.28% in the private sector and 0.05% in Multi-National Companies.
A more recent study conducted by Cyber Media Research Ltd. for NASSCOM in 2013 to understand the employment scenario of persons with disabilities in the IT – BPM Industry, revealed that the percentage of employees with disabilities vis-a-vis total employees was only 0.36%!
To change the situation and accelerate the inclusion of People with Disabilities in the skill development sector, GiftAbled has designed a program which gives accessible disable-friendly and highly demanded technical courses for People with Disabilities.
