Disability rights activists rap NITI action plan

CHENNAI: The draft three-year action plan prepared by NITI Aayog, the government think-tank, has ignored the provision of digital accessibility to persons with disability, rights activists say.
Last month, the NITI Aayog released the agenda plan for three years (2017-2020), outlining the vision and strategy to accelerate the country’s development. A section of that draft concerns the welfare of persons with disability. This plan becomes important as it, along with 7- and 15-year plans, will replace the current five-year plans of the Central government. The 12th five-year plan will end this year.
