No study materials, faculty for disabled students in post-graduate medical courses
The government has said that people with disabilities may now apply for post-graduate medical courses. People with 21 disabilities, including dyslexia, cerebral palsy, Parkinson’s, and partial loss of hearing and vision can appear for the NEET entrance exams.
The government will soon introduce this in undergraduate medical courses as well so that disabled students can study medicine without any problems.
However, when it comes to enabling this on the ground, nothing has been done.
For instance, the central government has not mentioned anything about providing special study materials and faculty for students with disabilities.
The candidates will not be given a concession in the fees or any benefits.
Unless these facilities are give, the change in policy means little.
