National Centre for Universal Design to be made a reality in the next 3 months

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: The National Centre for Universal Design and Barrier Free Environment which was promised in the 11th Five Year Plan, will be a reality in as soon as 3 months. This was announced by Mukul Wasnik, Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment while giving away the 3rd NCPEDP-MphasiS Universal Design Awards in New Delhi on August 14.

Wasnik said that over the past few years, the Government has been able to make some headway in the area of accessibility for people with disabilities. He mentioned the setting up of the Indian Sign Language Training and Research Centre which was inaugurated in October last year, the newly formed Department of Disability Affairs and the fact that the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment was the first Ministry to have an accessible website. However, there is still a long way to go, he added.

He reiterated the commitment of the U.P.A. Government and the personal interest of Prime Minister, Dr. Manmohan Singh in the issue of disability.
