The Vocational Rehabilitation Centre of PSRD provides self employment opportunities to destitute and disadvantaged disabled men and women through the provision of micro credit.
During 2011-2012, PSRD helped 28 deserving disabled persons to stand on their own feet by sanctioning an amount of Rs. 860,000 at a nominal service charge of 2.5 percent. Recovery for the year was very good. Since inception nearly 9 million rupees have been disbursed to 553 persons with disabilities. A directory of persons with disabilities who have been granted loans has been prepared for ready reference which includes their addresses and enterprises.
This centre also helps deserving disabled persons by providing wheelchairs, tripods, crutches and sewing machines as donation.
