STATE TO GIVE 5 PER CENT RESERVATION TO DIVYANGS IN DEVELOPMENT SCHEMES


3
To bring economic parity to people with disabilities in the State, the Gujarat government has included 5 per cent reservation in poverty alleviation and development schemes in its new ‘Divyang policy’. Another unique facet of the policy is the proposed scheme on ‘Independent Community Living for Persons with Disabilities’ which will encourage Divyangs to live with their families instead of specialised institutions.

Gujarat is likely to become the first State to bring a policy for the differently abled, 18 months after the passage of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Bill 2016.
