Udupi , Nov 18, 2015: On Nov 17,  33 tri-scooters were distributed to eligible physically challenged persons by the Udupi Zilla Panchayat in collaboration with the Udupi, Kundapur and Karkala Taluk Panchayats. The tri-scooters were purchased from three per cent of government grants reserved for the welfare of physically challenged persons.

“It is a positive sign that the zilla panchayat and taluk panchayats, which are independent bodies, have come together for the welfare of the physically handicapped persons,” she said. The zilla panchayat had taken the assistance of the Rural Development and Self Employment Training (RUDSET) Institute at Brahmavar and provided a week-long free training in driving vehicles and entrepreneurial development for physically challenged persons under the Rajiv Gandhi Chaitanya Scheme a few months ago.

“It is essential that the physically challenged persons start some enterprise on their own. That will make them financially independent. They should take advantage of government schemes.

The physically disabled must be supported to stand on their own and be independent. thanks to Udupi, Kundapur and Karkala Taluk Panchayats for your initiative to this campaign. We hope to see with more of such schemes for their skill development.

Hence such schemes provided by the Government is very helpful for the physically challenged. Some feel inferior and never come for forward thinking they are a burden but when moral support is given they feel on top and take it as a challenge.
