Differently-abled to get universal ID cards in 2 years

Union Minister for Social Justice and Empowerment Thawar Chand Gehlot has said that the work of distribution of Universal Identification Cards with nation-wide validity to differently-abled people will be completed in two years.
The survey work will provide information on the exact number of differently-abled persons in the nation and their social-economic status. The ID cards would ensure that they get easy access to government-sponsored schemes, Mr. Gehlot said at a programme held under the aegis of district administration and Department for the Welfare of Senior Citizens and Disabled at Dr. Ambedkar Bhavan in the city on Tuesday.
