Puducherry govt disburses loans for disabled people
Puducherry Chief Minister N Rangasamy today disbursed a sum of Rs 2.42 crores as loan to around 270 differently-abled persons to enable them to start self-employment projects implemented by the Corporation for Development of Women and Physically Challenged persons.
He said the government was implementing the schemes to promote self-employment among differently-abled so that they could stand on their own legs and enhance their socio-economic status.
The loan was meant to help the beneficiaries start ventures such as computer centres, provision centres, clothing outlet and other business units.
The fund was allotted from the National Corporation for the Welfare of Physically Handicapped people.
Chairman of the Corporation K Pandian detailed the projects operated by the Corporation here.
He said that loan disbursed today related to the fiscal 2015-2016.
