Disabled people will get more facilities in Railways – Bollywood Keeda

New Delhi: The Central Government has issued guidelines to make rail travel more convenient for disabled people. In this, it has been said to make the facilities more accessible in railway stations and trains. It has been said that technology based facilities like ‘Text-to-speech’ (a feature in which written text is converted into voice) and picture charts should also be made available to the disabled.

The Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (PWD) has asked stakeholders and the public to provide comments, objections and suggestions by January 29 on the proposed guidelines to create an enabling environment for persons with disabilities using rail. .

The guidelines also mention the need for a website dedicated to the disabled. Which helps them to access all the facilities. Also, they have been asked to create a mobile app and ‘One-Click Template’, which will display all the information and facilities available to them at the stations as well as in the train. These facilities will be based on the facilities being used in other countries of the world. It has also been proposed to install illuminated boards at stations which will also have ‘Braille signs’.
