Delhi University has 1,589 seats reserved for students with disability,of which,hardly one-third gets filled up every year.

It will help reduce the barriers of inaccessibility for disabled students to Delhi University.

This is a significant step in order to eradicate problems faced by visually impaired students especially when admissions are round the corner.If universities will proceed in this direction,India will soon be discrimination free and truly ‘incredible’.
