Not short on skills, disabled seek equal job opportunities

GURUGRAM: Earlier this week, a couple of hundred people took out a ‘peace march’ from Iffco Chowk to Cyber City. At the rally, organised by Navjyoti — a skill development centre sanctioned by the Centre to provide training to persons with disabilities — the differently-abled sought to bring to the notice of Corporate India that they too were as skilled as anyone able-bodied, that they too deserved to be judged on merit alone.
So, how far have companies become equal opportunity employers? Is it easier, now, for a person with disability to get placement purely on ability?
