Welfare for the Disabled

A Local Level Committee (LLC) has been set up by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment in every district in India, to monitor and govern issues related to disability. An LLC constituting the Deputy Commissioner of the district and an NGO working in the field of disability looks after matters related to welfare, rehabilitation, medical care, special education and legal guardianship of persons with disabilities. In Gurgaon, the LLC constitutes the Deputy Commissioner and the Spastic Society of Gurgaon. Some important decisions have recently been taken for the welfare of persons with disabilities - particularly those with mental disabilities, in Gurgaon - in an LLC meeting attended by Deputy Commissioner Shekhar Vidyarathi, Dr. Rajesh Bhola, President, Spastic Society of Gurgaon and City Magistrate Ms. Ekta Chopra.

1. A basic criterion for the issuance of Guardianship Certificates has been relaxed. Now, even those parents (of disabled children) who have migrated to Gurgaon from other cities, and who have stayed in Gurgaon for less than 10 years, will be considered for issuance of Guardianship Certificates, provided the applicants produce the address and identity proofs to the satisfaction of the competent authorities.  

2. A disability camp will shortly be organised at the premises of the Spastic Society of Gurgaon, Old Age Home, Sector 4, for the delivery of single window services to the disabled. Dr. Rajesh Bhola will co-ordinate for the same with the Chief Medical Officer, Primary Health Officer and the Disability Liaison Officer at the Civil Hospital.

3. All the major hospitals of Gurgaon have been advised to display an essential signboard (as per a specified content and design), which would help spread awareness on ‘How to prevent Disability’. The signboard would be positioned near the gynecological departments and neonatal nurseries. The lack of knowledge on the part of women, at the stages of pregnancy, delivery and child rearing, contributes significantly to the problem of disability. Such signboards have already been displayed at the Civil Hospital, Bus Stand and Spastic Society of Gurgaon.

4. A camp for measles vaccination of the disabled, and for needy children, will be organised at the Spastic Society of Gurgaon premises before this month end.
