Delhi: For visually impaired, voter IDs in braille
| Friday | 19th April, 2019
It was a bittersweet moment for the family of a visually impaired girl from East Delhi who received a braille voter ID card Thursday.
There are 5,128 voters with disabilities in East Delhi, out of which 276 are visually impaired.
The school that Kavita last studied in did not have proper facilities to support visually impaired people, the father alleged.
Election officials said the new card would help improve their participation and may also inspire those unfamiliar with braille to learn it.
Kavita Kumar (19) was one of the 50 visually impaired people from the area, including a few first time voters, who collected the card from Chief Electoral Officer Ranbir Singh at an event at Kashmere Gate.
