Maharashtra State Policy for Persons with Disabilities: 3% of budget, yoga for children, says Draft policy


1
The Maharashtra government has come up with a new draft policy for persons with disabilities which envisages earmarking three per cent of its total budget and using yoga to ensure development of differently abled children.
The policy also proposes compulsory enrolment of certain disabled children in conventional schools to facilitate their integration into society and also calls for every school to have at least one specialised teacher for children with disabilities. The draft policy — Maharashtra State Policy for Persons with Disabilities — prepared by the state social justice department comes nearly six months after the Lok Sabha passed a disabilities bill that stipulates punishment for those who discriminate against the disabled.
