The All-India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) is in the process of transforming some of the affiliated institutions into model institutes for physically challenged students. The institutes will ensure the inclusivity of physically challenged students in the mainstream education system. The Office of Accessible Assistive Technology (OAAT) will be set up in each of the model institutes that will be instrumental in helping disabled students.

Different categories such as Cognitive, Locomotive, Visual and Hearing Impairment have been slotted to help the students. AICTE aims to create at least 5 model institutions by the end of this year.

Prof Anil Sahasrabudhe, chairman, AICTE, stated that AICTE aims to transform one AICTE approved institution in each state into model institutes where funds will be provided to acquire all kinds of technological interventions for supporting students with all types of disabilities like People with Disability (PwD), Specific Learning Disability (SLD) and Dyslexia. It will be a remarkable case of access to higher technical education in the spirit of Antyodaya.

He further added that some of the good-ranking institutions are undergoing an accessibility audit and thereafter selected institutes would be given up to Rs 5 crore each after these institutions fulfil the audit requirements for physically challenged students. We plan to set up five institutes by the end of this year. 

Mr Anil Sahasrabudhe further added that a committee composed of some IIT professors and experts who have worked in the area of disability are conducting the audit of the identified institutions. Inclusivity of disabled students into mainstream education is in sync with the objectives of NEP 2020.
