Rajasthan to distribute smartphones to people with disabilities
Rajasthan is set to become the second state in India to distribute smartphones to people with disabilities. These smartphones are specially designed for blind and those suffering from low vision.
Using technology to make life easier for the disabled
The Department of Social Justice and Welfare will bear part of the cost of Rs 10,000 while the rest, Rs 2,000, will be paid for by the Central government.
The move is intended to make day-to-day life easier for people with disabilities with the help of technological interventions.
Himachal Pradesh is the first state in the country to have distributed these phones to 2,000 people with disabilities.
Rajasthan has a total blind population of 35,000, according to official data.
