An exclusive job portal for the differently abled ( > ) was recently launched by the Indian Federation of United Nations Associations (IFUNA) in association with Friends Of Differently Abled (FODA).

According to a press release, the portal will provide a link between employers and persons with disabilities who can register with the portal and upload their names along with other particulars.
