Chandigarh colleges to pay writers who help visually impaired write exams
Those who help visually impaired students by writing their exams will be paid for doing it by colleges in Chandigarh.
A notification has been issued by the Directorate of Higher Education in Chandigarh that says that for each exam, the college will give Rs 300 to the writer and up to Rs 2,000 per writer.
However, students and colleges are unaware of this. Many of the writers say that they are yet to receive any money. Colleges say they will start paying the writers when they get the notification.
