NEED FOR THE HIGHER EDUCATION FOR THE DEAF: To survive in the present competitive and ever challenging scientific world, one has to be grown suitably to face the challenges, coming on the way of life. The Government provision for the job reservation (i.e., 5%) for handicapped people is not helpful to the deaf community, because the Deaf students are not in the position to acquire higher education in Andhra Pradesh. The major drawback here is language barrier. Since the deaf students learn conceptual language, very few deaf students can pass out 10th Class with hard struggle. Where as other type of disabled. Viz. Orthopedically Handicapped and Visually Handicapped (Blind) are good enough to acquire higher education and to fight for their right of reservation in getting their job placement. Since, non availability of qualified Hearing Impaired (Deaf) in the open market, the percentage that is reserved for the deaf population (in private as well as in Govt. Sector) is being transferred to either to O.H. or to V.H., as because there are few qualified deaf in Andhra Pradesh& Telengana available. The deaf with Intermediate or graduation are very less in number being registered with special employment exchange at Hyderabad or even in the state. Now a days the Government has fixed a minimum qualification for clerical job is as Intermediate or its equivalent. Moreover many of Nationalised , Private Banks &Private Sector are also giving employment opportunity to the Hearing Impaired if they are graduates in commerce with computer background. Therefore, this institute has taken up a challenging task of introducing B.Com to these less fortune Hearing Impaired students of Andhra Pradesh.
