New policy on jobs for physically challenged on the anvil
Hyderabad: IT Minister KT Rama Rao said on Friday that a new policy will be introduced to help physically challenged to get jobs through training and to launch programmes through Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK) for their training and skills. He also offered all help and cooperation to the institutions working with similar motto.
Inaugurating E Info Media Call Center at Begumpet, whose head office is located at Bangalore, the minister said that the government will extend support and give special incentives to such companies or institutions if they take up programmes in Warangal and other second rung cities and district headquarters.
There are several IT companies ready to take physically challenged persons with skills and training to fit their requirements, KTR said adding that TASK will offer training to them for jobs. The minister exuded confidence that the physically challenged are second to none if required training and skills are offered.
KTR was taken by surprise by speaking to one Sultana, a staffer of the call centre, for stating that they will vie with others and only need training and job and not any exemptions. The Centre is specifically giving training and skills to the physically challenged, he said and felicitated Ashok Giri and his family for their services towards physically challenged for over a decade. The IT Minister offered all support to the E Info Media Call Center for its growth.
