Supreme Court to pass orders on disable friendly educational institutes 12.12.2017 DNA: Opinion
The Supreme Court today said it will pass order on a plea seeking to make higher education institutions physically accessible for disabled students. A bench of Justices A K Sikri and Ashok Bhushan said that it will pass certain directions on the issue and give some time for its compliance. The bench was hearing a plea filed by an organisation Disabled Rights Group in 2006, espousing the cause of a disabled girl who is 100 per cent wheelchair bound. The girl, who wanted to study law, could not study at the National Law University and managed to gain admission in a private university. Counsel for the petitioner organisation said the college at the private university does not have facilities for disabled students despite a law which mandates provision of facilities to such students. "She was made to stay in a hostel in a shared room with two other normal students, the bathroom did not have a ramp and there was no escort facility in the hostel for such students," he said. He said Persons for ...

Punjab can fund education of children of soldiers killed in action if Centre can't: Amarinder Singh 9.12.2017 DNA: Money
Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh today said his government was willing to pay for educational expenses of the children of those killed or disabled in the line of duty. Speaking at a panel discussion at the Military Literature Festival here, the chief minister said the Congress would do everything in its power for defence veterans if it came to power at the Centre. Amarinder had on December 1 written to Defence Minister Nirmala Sitharaman seeking reversal of the ministry's decision to cap educational expenses paid to children of personnel killed or disabled in the line of duty. "It is the government's responsibility to ensure the welfare of the soldiers and veterans, as well as their families," the chief minister said. Terming the decision "immoral" and "unprincipled", Singh said it would impact around 32,000 students in various institutions while saving the central government a mere Rs 3 crore per annum. He called for an immediate review and revocation of the decision. "If the Centre can't pay ...

The Centre has urged all states to ensure that every child with disability must get free education till he or she turns 18. Referring to the provisions of the Rights of Persons with Disability (RPwD) Act, the Human Resource Development (HRD) Ministry has also asked the heads of the state education departments to ensure that all schools within their jurisdiction have inclusive classrooms and teaching-learning atmosphere to enable special children to study along with others. For this, the ministry has asked the states to make "suitable modifications" in the curriculum and examination system to meet the needs of students with disabilities such as giving extra time for completion of the examination paper, facility of scribe or amanuensis, and exemption from second and third language courses. This comes as complaints against many of the schools denying admission to special children and discriminating against those admitted continue to pour in from different parts of the country despite clear provisions in the ...
