State Minister for Information Technology Junaid Ahmed Palak has been talking about making a separate job site for disable people.

People with incapacities can without much of a stretch apply for a vocation at home, and they can arrange a prospective employee meet-up.

State Minister Junaid Ahmed Palak said, "Specially enabled persons can apply online for information exchange, particularly as per the capabilities and the activity of making an entry to begin and accept a position meet through video conferencing".

He said that the portal will be very easy to work with the employer of any place as soon as the employer communicates with the employer.

The State Minister said this while inaugurating the IT competition for disabled people organized by Bangladesh Computer Council and Asia Pacific University at Asia Pacific University in Green Road, Dhaka.

In the function, the State Minister said that importance is given to the inclusion of disabled people in the main stream of development. Disabled is not the burden of the country. In his discourse, he guided them to orchestrate employments via preparing them to join the standard improvement of the disabled. 

In the next one year, about three thousand disabled students will be trained in seven Regional Offices of the Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC). In the next five years, the employment of 10 lakh young people in the ICT sector will be arranged, of which at least one percent will be disabled.

Palak said the disabled people are not the burden of the country, but they are our development advocates.

During the following five years, ten lakh occupations will be made in the IT part. At any rate one percent of handicapped individuals will find the opportunity there.

In fact, in the year 2016, national IT competition started with disability. This year's competition was the fourth arrangement.

Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the University of Asia Pacific Manzur Ahmed Chowdhury, Executive Director of BCC Partha Pratim Das, senior officials of the Department of Information spoke on the occasion.

Out of 100 participants participating in IT-related competitions from different districts of the country, three of the three winners were declared in the four divisions.
