Subject: - Incentives to employers in the private sector for providing
employment to the persons with disabilities - Regarding.

Sir/Madam,

I am directed to say that the most important aspect of rehabilitation
of persons with disabilities is their economic rehabilitation, which
can be achieved by providing employment or through self-employment.
Government has been promoting the self-employment of persons with
disabilities by providing vocational training and loan on concessional
rates through National Handicapped Finance and Development Corporation
(NHFDC). Employment of persons with disabilities in the Government is
promoted through reservation. Section 33 of the Persons with
Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full
Participation) Act, 1995 provides for a reservation of 3% in the
vacancies in identified posts (1% each for persons with blindness or
low vision, hearing impairment and locomotor disability or cerebral
palsy) in the Government establishments including the Public Sector
Undertakings. To promote employment of persons with disabilities in
the expanding private sector, it has been decided that incentives be
provided to the private sector employers.

2. Section 41 of the Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities,
Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995 provides for
incentives to employers to ensure that at least five percent of their
work force was composed of persons with disabilities. The National
Policy for Persons with Disabilities, which was adopted in 2006 also
lays down that pro-active measures will be taken to provide
incentives, awards, tax exemptions etc. to encourage employment of
persons with disabilities in private sector. Accordingly, Finance
Minister in his Budget Speech had announced a Scheme for employment of
physically challenged in the organised sector.

3. After consideration, the Government has approved the enclosed
scheme of providing incentives to the employers in the private sector.
Under the scheme, the employees with disabilities covered under the
Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights
and Full Participation) Act, 1995 and the National Trust for Welfare
of Persons with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation and
Multiple Disabilities Act, 1999 and working in the private sector,
with monthly wage up to Rs.25000/- per month would be covered. The
scheme would be applicable to all the employees with disabilities, who
are appointed on or after 1.4.2008.

4. It is requested that the above scheme may please be brought to the
notice of all concerned including the State Chambers of Commerce &
Industry, District Industry Centres, Employment Exchanges, Special
Employment Exchanges, Vocational Training Centres etc. so that persons
with all types of disabilities get opportunity for employment in the
private sector.

5. The problems faced, if any, in implementation of the scheme may be
brought to the notice of Shri Ashish Kumar, Deputy Director General,
Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment, Room No. 610, 'A' Wing,
Shastri Bhawan, New Delhi - 110001 [Phone No. 23383853 (O) and e-mail:
