Disabled employees working with central government may soon get motorised wheelchairs and other helping devices.
The Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has started a scheme for providing facilities to the employees with disabilities. However, the scheme is initially being started for those working in the DoPT.
As per the scheme, which will come into force from next month, persons with disabilities will get wheelchairs (motorised), special furniture, hearing aids with battery, low vision aids, smart cane and special software or computer.
“After successful implementation of the scheme in DoPT, other government departments will also be asked to follow it,” a senior official said.
