Dear All,

National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (NCPEDP) is a non-profit voluntary organisation founded in 1996 with Smt. Sonia Gandhi as the Founder Chairperson. NCPEDP stresses on the need to move away from the traditionally held views of charity and welfare to those of productivity and empowerment of disabled people. In the last fourteen years, NCPEDP has played a crucial role in bringing about several policy changes with regard to disability in India.


NCPEDP in association with AccessAbility and BarrierBreak Technologies and with the support of MphasiS has instituted the first ever 'The NCPEDP-MphasiS Universal Design Awards' to encourage those doing exemplary work towards the cause of accessibility and thus ensuring a life of equality and dignity for disabled people. The awards will cover accessibility in the following fields:


1. Built Environment

2. Transport

3. Information and Communication Technology

4. Services

5. Aids and Appliances


The awards will be given in 3 categories: Persons with disabilities, Working Professionals and Companies/Organisations.


Enclosed please find a Concept note along with the nomination forms. These can also be downloaded from
