Dept of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities to launch e-newsletter


With an objective to keep track of the performance of different schemes, the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (DEPwD) would launch a bi-monthly e-newsletter.

The ministry of social justice and empowerment claims that the e-newsletter will be helpful in continuity of flow of information and to bridge the gap with our target audience.

“It would be a gateway to know our department’s activities. It will also keep track of the performance of our different schemes,” the ministry said.

The DEPwD is going to launch its first bi-monthly e-newsletter during the inauguration of main building of Composite Regional Centre for Skill Development, Rehabilitation and Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (CRC), Kozhikode on January 18 by Union Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment, Virendra Kumar.

“This e-newsletter has been a humble attempt to showcase the department’s activities in an accessible platform. The first e-newsletter of its own kind will be having the messages of all ministers, highlights of the important event of one year, success stories, digital corner, Covid corner, media highlights, excerpts from RPwD Act, Amrit Mahotsav related events and last but not the least the upcoming events of the Department,” the ministry said.

Future e news-letters will add more features to it including Employment Corner, Citizen Corner, Quiz on various Schemes and the regular feature of the subject experts.

The CRC in Kozhikode was established in 2012 by the Ministry under the administrative control of National Institute for Empowerment of Persons with Multiple Disabilities (NIEPMD), Chennai (an autonomous Institute under the administrative control of DEPwD) as its outreach/extension centre.
