The Department of Empowerment of People with Disabilities (DEPwD) has signed a memorandum of understanding with Amazon India and the Skill Council for People with Disabilities to provide skill training and employment opportunities in the e-commerce sector.

The agreement was signed in the presence of Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Virendra Kumar.

According to officials, the Skill Council for People with Disabilities will manage candidate lifecycles through the SCPwD Partner Management System (PMS) portal, conduct training programmes for identified trainers, validate training centres in accordance with DEPwD guidelines, and provide placement support and monitoring of candidates placed with Flipkart and in organisations other than Amazon through the Skill Grid, SCPwD Placement Portal.

Amazon India's role would be to collaborate with DEPwD and the Skill Council for People with Disabilities (SCPwD) on a structured skilling programme for inclusion and assimilation that can aid not only in hiring people with disabilities, but also in nurturing and creating an equitable environment for their growth.

The Department of Empowerment of People with Disabilities' role is to mobilise PwDs for skill training and jobs, to facilitate resource persons from its organisations, including the provision of sign language interpreters, to publish job/training-related material, and to organise job fairs.

A senior official in the Disabilities Affairs Department said the MoU with Amazon e-commerce company will help in PwD entrepreneurs become suppliers to Amazon with loans from National Handicapped Finance and Development Corporation (NHFDC), if required. This will also enable disabled workers in warehousing and last mile delivery chains and in back office help desk and computer-related jobs in the e-commerce sector.
