The Union Government’s Accessible India Campaign (AIC) which was launched two years ago has proved to be a blessing for the differently-abled citizens who usually have a tough time getting a job in India. By the end of September 2017, eight government office buildings in Coimbatore will become more accessible to the differently-abled.

According to an article by The Hindu, District Differently-abled Welfare Officer P Chandrasekar said that 24 buildings had been selected and assessed by PWD officials to implement the facilities required to make them differently-abled friendly in the 2016-17 financial year.

The District Differently-abled Welfare Office sent across the cost estimate prepared by the officials to the Commissioner of Differently-abled, from where it will be forwarded to the Centre.

The facilities will include the following:railings on ramps
