Posted 20/5-11 at 04.15

K.V. Rajanna, the Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities in the state of Karnataka, says that although money had been spent on disability, living conditions had not improved. "This is due to the slow pace of implementation of projects and indifference of officials to the plight of these peoples," he added.

He has also started legal proceedings against the Secretary responsible for primary education for failing to implement the scheme for integrated education. He asked the officials to see that all disabled children who drop out of school were identified and sent back.
