Yesterday, We invited the Chief Commissioner for Persons with
Disabilities Dr Kamlesh Kumar Pandey in JNU. And had engrossing
discussion over various issues ranging from the powers of the CCPD
office to the term ‘Divyang’. He kept listening and responded to all
queries put up by the students. The biggest outcome: now blind people
those who don’t have internet connection and don’t want to be
dependent on others to write their complain which violates their right
to privacy could directly send their complain to the CCPD Office in
Braille. Yes, The CCPD has agreed in principle to bring out a
notification which would enable blind people residing in the rural
hemlets of the country to register their complain in Braille. JNU
Visually challenged Forum is immensely delighted at this development
which would help millions of blind people who hardly approach the
office for the redressal of their grievances. We’ll follow it up until
this gets implemented. This should also be emulated in the States.
