Study circle for disabled students started in Andhra Pradesh
July 4, 2017
The government of Andhra Pradesh will start a Study Circle to help disabled students to train them for competitive exams and civil services.
The AP Study Circle for the Differently-Abled will be started in Vijayawada in July and the location is being decided. The new facility will give free coaching to eligible candidates helping them prepare for competitive exams conducted by the Andhra Pradesh Public Service Commission.
This will later be scaled up and candidates aspiring for civil services will also be given coaching for exams conducted by the Union Public Service Commission [UPSC]. Many disabled people live in poverty without proper food, clothing and shelter. So the government has started two new homes for the blind and destitute in Anantapur and Kakinada.
It is also setting up a junior college for the blind in Visakhapatnam, a school for the disabled at Hindupur, and a home for people with locomotor disabilities in Guntur district.
