Rajasthan to start a university for people with disabilities
The Rajasthan government will start a university for people with disabilities in the state. Courses at this university will provide a detailed insight into different skills and courses to disabled people.
Anyone will be eligible to join the university. Over 50% of the seats will be reserved for people with disabilities.
The proposal to set up the university was made by Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje. Rs 6.5 crore has been sanctioned for the university.
The government said that there are no universities in India that cater to the needs of people with disabilities. The proposed university will also employ specially trained teachers for disabled people.
According to the 2011 census, Rajasthan has more than 15 lakh people with disabilities. The university will be located at Jamdoli. It is expected to start enrolments by 2019.
