Decision Maker Response

Maneka Gandhi’s response

Feb 13, 2017 — Dear people,
I have seen a petition by Ms. Virali Modi, a person with disability based in Mumbai. She says she has been facing a lot of problems during travel by rail and has pointed out various issues of accessibility at railway stations as well as trains for wheel chair bound persons. The Ministry of Railways under the leadership of Sh Suresh Prabhu ji has been conscious of this issue. However, keeping in view the desirability of facilitating comfortable travel for disabled persons, I am writing to Sh Suresh Prabhu ji to request him to take up the required changes in mission mode.

I would like you to remain updated about the work done by the Ministry of Women and Child Development.
