Odisha govt to make all structures accessible by year end
The Odisha government claims that it is working towards making buildings and public places accessible to persons with disabilities by the end of 2016.
Work on the first phase is likely to start by September. Fifty structures, including government buildings, meeting halls, theatres, parks and community centres will be made accessible by the end of this year.
The changes will cater to disabilities of all kinds. Lack of ramps, lifts, Braille signage and non-tactile flooring are some of the problems that persons with disabilities face on a daily basis.
Gates, ramps, elevators, toilets and waiting halls in buildings will be made user-friendly.
Work will first start in the capital Bhubaneswar after which the government will take up 25 to 100 buildings in other parts of Odisha.
