Under the Unique Disability IDs (UDID) initiative, 15,000 Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) have received unique IDs.
Story so far: In order to offer PwDs comprehensive services, the District Disability Rehabilitation Centre (DDRC) was established. Over 15,000 PwDs have received their IDs so far as a result of the Unique Disability IDs (UDID) programme, which was launched this year.
- The Union Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment is responsible for DDRC.
- The goal of the UDID project is to establish a nationwide database for PwDs.
PwD beneficiaries: The project will promote transparency, effectiveness, and simplicity in the delivering of government benefits to the PwDs. The UDID cards provide coverage for more than 21 different forms of disabilities, including locomotor disability, hearing impairment, and blindness. DDRC has affiliations with 13 public hospitals.
