Steps for dif­fer­ently abled

The Free Press Journal - - EDIT -

With ref­er­ence to the ar­ti­cle “Not even 1% In­dian in­sti­tutes dis­abled-friendly” (Nov 14), the sta­tis­tics stated are re­ally dis­tress­ful. It speaks a lot about pre­car­i­ous con­di­tions of dif­fer­ently abled in the coun­try. It is shame on part of gov­er­nance that out of 789 uni­ver­si­ties, 37204 col­leges and 11443 stand-alone in­sti­tu­tions, not more than one per­cent of our ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions have dis­abled-friendly cam­puses. Prog­no­sis is not dif­fer­ent in any walk of life, be it em­ploy­ment or other civic fa­cil­i­ties. Hence, it is press­ing need of hour that ap­pro­pri­ate steps may be ini­ti­ated to im­prove con­di­tions in ed­u­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions in the light of re­cently passed Rights of Per­sons with Dis­abil­i­ties Act 2016 as there are lot of wel­fare mea­sures in­cor­po­rated in it and, if im­ple­mented hon­estly and fairly, dif­fer­ently abled will be ben­e­fit­ted im­mensely. — Sud­hakar Pandey
