D.N.I.S. News Network – The Haryana Government has announced a plan to provide ramps in schools and separate resource rooms at the headquarters of each block for disabled school children, according to State’s Education Minister Phool Chand Mullana.
Stating this on 13 August, the Education Minister said the ramps would be constructed in 950 schools by this yearend and Rs. 57 lakh has been earmarked for the purpose. Medical check-up of all children from Class I to VIII is also proposed.

To meet their educational needs, 418 teachers from 10 districts had been given special training during the summer vacation.
