The administration will conduct a handicapped accessibility audit of all the government offices. The audit would identify spots and areas that can be converted for easy accessibility to the disabled.
Also, the administration plans to ensure that students studying in schools have disability certificates.
A drive to make this possible has been suggested by district collector Avantika Singh. The administration plans to conduct the work for disability certificates for school students in coordination with the district education department.
The decision was taken at a meeting of the two committees formed for the welfare of disabled in the city. It was decided that the Viklang Dhara Committee will work for providing certification, benefits of schemes for handicapped and will discuss various issued faced by the handicapped apart from monitoring the work done for them in the district.
Another local level committee formed under the National Trust Act 1999 will look into the welfare of persons with cerebral palsy, mental retardation and multiple disabilities for works pertaining to guardianship certificate and other issues.
