With society becoming increasingly inclusive, there are more jobs that are reinventing themselves to be all-inclusive. For the longest time, people with disabilities were not even considered to get a job, thereby rendering them incapable of earning a livelihood for themselves. This disallowed them from sustaining themselves and effectively pushing them to be someone else’s burden when in reality they are fully capable of sustaining themselves if given a chance.

Paying heed to the problems of unemployment to the differently-abled, the Haryana government has now initiated a new scheme – the Haryana Labour Disability Assistance scheme 2021.

About the Haryana Labour Disability Assistance Scheme 2021

In order to allow those who are differently-abled to sustain themselves, the Haryana Labour Welfare Fund aims to provide financial assistance of ₹1.5 lakh to 3 lakh to registered labourers.

This amount would be transferred to the bank accounts of the candidates as a one-time settlement and the assistance would be given on the permanent disability percentage.

Here is how the percentage goes:

Disability (Handicapped) percentageAssistance Amount
Upto 50 percent₹1.5 lakh
51 percent to 75 percent₹2 lakh
76 percent and above₹3 lakh

For someone in Haryana who has a 50% disability percentage, the assistance amount is ₹1.5 lakh. For those who are 51% to 75% disabled, the state government will offer financial assistance of ₹2 lakh and for those with 76% and above, the financial assistance amount is ₹3 lakh.

Summing it up

For decades, disabled individuals have watched nations progress with them on the sidelines, unable to contribute to overall progress with the skills they have. There is a definite difference between disability and being in a vegetative state; the latter of which disabled individuals aren’t. They have a set of skills they can offer value through and thereby earn a livelihood for themselves. They are disabled, but still have skills that corporations, organisations and governments can benefit from. All they need is a chance, and schemes like this one are a start.
