Rajasthan Univ admits speech, hearing impaired students to undergraduate courses
July 7, 2016
For the first time this year, the Rajasthan University is admitting speech and hearing impaired students to undergradute courses. A special admission scheme for students with speech and hearing difficulties has been introduced.
However, the university does not have a single teacher who can teach in sign language. That is the case with all the government colleges in the state.
Colleges say they are hoping to cross this barrier through digital classes.The fees of these students have been waived to encourage more admissions in this category.
