Gujarat set to announce Divyang Policy

In a bid to ensure that persons with disabilities enjoy their rights equally with others, Gujarat is set to become the first state to announce a Divyang Policy. This comes nearly 18 months after the Parliament passed The Rights of Persons with Disabilities Bill, 2016.
“The Divyang Policy is in the final stages of preparation, and will be announced soon. It proposes benefits such as additional reservation in higher education, government jobs, and allocation in various developmental schemes for people with disabilities,” Kamal Dayani, principal secretary, social justice and empowerment department, told DNA.
