Vishakhapatnam Collectorate to install 2 new lifts for disabled people
The Vishakhapatnam Collectorate is all set to get a much needed accessibility makeover.
Authorities are bringing in changes to the building to make it easier for disabled people to enter and move around. One of the main changes is the construction of two lifts. The lifts will help disabled people as well as senior citizens.
This much needed facility was inaugurated by none other than Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.
The lifts were built at a cost of Rs 70 lakh under the central government's Scheme for Implementation of Persons with Disabilities Act (SIPDA).
The Vishakhapatnam Collectorate building is a very old one, dating back to the British era. Authorities are also hoping to make it a tourist attraction. Facilities for providing clean, drinking water and bio-toilets are being planned.
CCTV cameras will be installed at various places across the building to ensure safety. The Vishakhapatnam Collectorate will also get WIFI. The building will be decorated with colorful lights in the evening. A park has been developed inside the building premises. Facts about the Vishakhapatnam Collectorate, its origin and stories behind it, will be placed in different parts of the building.
