Job Fair for the Differently Abled

The Ahmedabad-based Blind People’s Association (BPA) organised a job fair for the first time on Tuesday, for the differently-abled competent enough to do jobs.

160 institutes across Gujarat were invited for the fair. There was good response from women candidates who were 30-35 percent of total candidates.

As many as 17 local companies hired a total of 350 candidates for the jobs of data entry, lift operators, toy makers and animators. Salaries offered were in the range of Rs 3,000 to 6,000 a month.

BPA Director Bhushan Punani said: “The companies have to be told that they should recruit the differently-abled persons not because they are disabled, but for the capabilities they have.”

The BPA intends to hold such fairs twice a year now onwards.

Great effort, not just by BPA but even by the employers who have moved beyond pity and shown enthusiasm to employ them.

That is the basic difference in management style.
Whenever,the head of the family shows concern,the entire family stands together.
That is Gujarat.
One hears of all kinds of reservations. Has the BPA ever asked for one? NO. They are self respecting lot.
