Telangana is making all its IT and ITES buildings differently abled-friendly. This is a first-of-its-kind initiative in the country. 

Telangana is setting a great example for others to follow. The state is all set to make its IT and ITES buildings differently abled-friendly. This initiative has been undertaken by the NASSCOM Foundation and 175 companies situated in two IT parks of Hyderabad will undergo constructional changes to make the spaces suitable for differently-abled people.

In this drive, each and every aspect of the buildings, right from the entry/exit gates to cafeterias and restrooms will undergo a change so as to make them easily accessible for people with disabilities.

While 25 companies have already been audited, 100 more are set to be audited within the next year. The first phase of this project is expected to be completed in a year.

NASSCOM Foundation has already begun the process of auditing at Madhapur and Nanakramguda, which include major companies such as  Oracle, Wipro, Accenture, Microsoft,  TCS, Deloitte, etc.

This project has a vision of increasing the number of differently-abled employees which currently stands at an alarmingly low rate. Altogether, they make up for just about 1% of the entire employee population in most companies of this sector.

Hopefully, in times to come, many more states will accept this initiative and we can make the entire country a more differently abled-friendly one.
