Govt decides to scrap Department of Disabilities


There is a surprising move to scrap the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities which was created during the tenure of the previous government to address the growing concern and rising number of disabled in the country.

The department was carved out after a string of protest by the disabled people demanding scores of benefits from the government.  Stuti Narain Kacker, IAS UP 1978 officer was appointed as the Secretary of the department who demitted the office just recently

Under the proposal the work of the department will now be carried forward by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment which was serving as the supervising Ministry of the department.
