NCPEDP to conduct employment audit in private sector

DNIS News Network -- The cross-disability advocacy organisation, National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (NCPEDP), has planned to carry out an employment audit to assess employment of disabled people in the corporate sector.

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 the last 40 years.

The study, based on the top 70 Indian companies, revealed that only 10 companies had employed 1 per cent disabled people. It was found that only 0.54 per cent disabled people were employed in the public sector. In private sector companies the percentage of disabled employees was 0.28 per cent and in multinationals stood at even lower 0.05.

It was surprising to note that multinational companies, who follow strict quotas and laws for employing disabled people in other countries, had employed the least amount of disabled people in India.

To assess the attitudinal state of most companies regarding employment of disabled people, NCPEDP has now decided to carry out a second audit.
