Odisha government's Braille calendar is finally out!
January 24, 2018
The government of Odisha has printed a calendar in Braille this year, considered to be a first of its kind in the state.
Apart from days and dates, the calendar has the dates of important Hindu festivals, government holidays and information on different government schemes for persons with disabilities on the last four pages, according to the printing press that has published the calendar.
The calendar has 32 pages and is printed in the Red Cross's computerised Braille printing press. About 1,000 copes of the Odia Braille calendar were printed in the first phase and these will be sent to different organisations.
The Odisha Blind Foundation had paid for the printing in the last two years. This year, the social security and empowerment of persons with disabilities department has sponsored the printing of around 2,000 calendars.
The cover page of the calendar has been printed in normal letters and by a general press.
