Tamil Nadu government to ensure barrier-free government buildings by conducting audits
Tamil Nadu government is all set to ensure that their buildings are disabled friendly and barrier-free. An audit will be conducted at all existing buildings and those that are under construction as well across the state.
Out of more than 52,000 government buildings across Tamil Nadu, 37,000 have already been made accessible. They have wheelchair ramps, special bathrooms and other facilities.
A government official said that these phased audits will be carried out by engineers in every district. These reports will later be submitted to chief engineers. Authorities will also make sure that this process is being carried out on time and that measures are being taken to make buildings disabled friendly at the earliest.
On Tuesday, authorities from the buildings department of Tamil Nadu met with various welfare organizations for people with disabilities. Officials pointed out that this meeting was held in order to know how they can work towards creating a better barrier-free environment in government buildings across Tamil Nadu.
