700 students from 25 colleges to conduct audit, make Chandigarh a better place for the differently-abled











IN A bid to make Chandigarh disabled-friendly, around 700 NSS volunteers from 25 different colleges along with their program officers will conduct an audit across the city. ‘’Chandigarh is going to be the first city in the world to carry out such an audit,’’ Prof B S Chavan, Director-Principal of the Government Medical College and Hospital, Sector 32, said during an orientation program for the NSS volunteers.
The audit is being carried out in four phases — the first one was on February 14 when places were identified, the phase was the orientation of volunteers on Wednesday. The audit will be carried out from February 22 to 26 and the reports will be submitted by February 28. The volunteers would themselves use the wheelchairs and prepare a first-hand account of facilities available for differently-abled people at various places.
