Hyderabad designer is India's first hearing impaired person to get driving license
October 19, 2017
India's first driving license to a hearing impaired person will be issued to Annapragada Manikantaa from Hyderabad. Manikanta, who is from Moti Nagar, got a Learner's Driving Licence four days ago.
He later applied for a permanent driving license, completed the driving test and his skills were appreciated by the local staff.
He will be asked to display a logo which states the driver has hearing disability. But as the rule is new, the official logo is still not available.
Manikanta, who is also a graphic designer, has been asked to design eight versions of the logo from which the Road Transport Authority will pick one as the official logo. This will be displayed on the front and rear sides of a vehicle.
