Bengaluru's Chinnaswamy stadium becomes disabled friendly
Chinnaswamy cricket stadium in Bengaluru has come up with a special provision for fans with disabilities and the elderly.
Now they can easily access the stands with an electronically operated chair that has been set up at the entrance of Gate number One.
The chair looks like a ramp and will help fans reach the entry point directly. All he or she has to do is sit on the chair after which the assistant will push a button that will get him to the entrance in less than a minute.
The chair will be a huge relief given the large crowds at the gates before any match.There are plans to install such ramps in other stands of the Chinnaswamy as well.
