Kerala tourism aims to become barrier-free for people with disabilities
May 24, 2017
The government of Kerala has decided to make the state tourism barrier-free for people with disabilities.
The tourism department will make all its facilities across the state accessible for people with disabilities, including parks, hotels and other properties.
Kannur district in the state has already set an example by making all 2,800 government institutions barrier-free. The government wants to do the same all over the state and also encourage the private sector to become accessible for people with disabilities.
The tourism department will now clear projects only if they ensure access to people with physical disabilities.
