  • Affirmative Action for the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes communities is a voluntary commitment by Indian companies to help and ensure equal opportunity to

    members of the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes communities.

    Lack of employability has also been identified as major source of lack of employment amongst the Indian Youth and SC and ST population in particular.

    The Schedule Caste and Schedule Tribes have suffered educational deprivation for a very large span of time. Even after the 50 years of independence and Indian central and state

    go er e ts interventions, SCs and STs have not been able to bridge the divide existing between them and the higher castes/ general category.

    Affirmative Action promotes encouragement of budding entrepreneurs through mentoring programmes to help him/her develop a sustainable system.

    Employment helps to empower through the adoption of caste-sensitive employers for increasing the number of SC and ST employee in the workforce.

  • We are helping corporate in a entire value chain of 4E of Affirmative Action.

    Employability is not just about vocational and academic skills. Individuals need relevant and usable labour market information to help them make informed decisions about the

    labour market options available to them.

    Initiatives such as scholarships, primary, secondary and higher education programmes targeted for the disadvantaged, adult literacy and others through Affirmative Action by

    the private sector can boost the current dismal scenario.

    Entrepreneurship development for creating self-reliant individuals and families, through identification and selection of persons with adequate skills and risk-taking capacity;

    capability for business plan development and the ability to link financial institutions for

    credit facilities.

    Setting goal towards o discrimination. setting a policy of positi e discri i atio whereby they are actively favouring SC/ST candidates for employment provided they are

    equal on merit/competence to other candidates.
