Colour-coded cards to be launched for 2.7 crore disabled

NEW DELHI: India will initiate the first-ever exercise to map over 2.7 crore differently-abled people and provide them with colour-coded universal disability cards.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will launch a mega programme in January in six states, which would first identify differently-abled across India, issue them a unique identity card and help the government in planning dedicated area-based and requirement-based programmes.
