Disability certificate eludes 48% in state

Despite the Centre’s long-standing directive that state governments should proactively identity differently-abled individuals and issue them disability certificates, only 52 per cent of such individuals have these certificates in Punjab so far. 
As per figures available with the state Department of Social Security and Development of Women, which anchors schemes for the welfare of the disabled, 3.46 lakh of the total 6.54 lakh handicapped individuals have been issued disability certificates so far.
