Referral units for disabled throughout the country

DNIS News Network - The Centre has asked all state governments to set up referral units for the disabled, at state and district levels.

The state governments have been asked to provide comprehensive rehabilitation services to the physically challenged at grassroot level, under the National programme for Rehabilitation of Persons with Disabilities. The Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment said these units would provide all-round treatment and specialised services, such as physiotherapy, occupational therapy, radiological assessment and assistive devices.

A sum of Rs 104.13 crore has been allotted by the Centre to States and Union Territories to launch units in 82 districts throughout India.
