Saraf promises college to differently-abled students - JAIPUR

As a major respite for deaf and dumb students here, state government has decided to make arrangements for them in some colleges across the state on Wednesday. Education minister Kalicharan Saraf has also assured of opening a college for them very soon. The move came after deaf and dumb students protested for the past one week at Udyog Bhavan demanding a dedicated college for them.

Notably, Rajasthan has no college for deaf and dumb students. In the absence of any college, they are forced to study in normal colleges where they find no teachers who know sign language. Every year hundreds of students pass out from our schools and head for different colleges for studies. Many of them drop out due to unfriendly educational environment.

This situation has created a major obstacle for them in pursuing higher education. In the absence of higher education they fail to reap the benefits of reservations in government jobs. 

 State has also opened a section each for five humanities subjects in Poddar College. Here translators will help students and students can apply for it till the first week of October.
