UNIVERSAL ID FOR DISABLED

The card will be accepted by Central and State Governments

Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment would soon issue a universal identity card for the disabled of the country to help them avail government services more easily. The card will be accepted by all the central and state governments. There are 2.68 crore disabled in the country, but so far there is no proper identity document for them, Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment Thawar Chand Gehlot told Lok Sabha recently. The card will be linked with the Aadhar card and the data will be available online to ensure transparency, he added.
