At Conference Hall 1, DAIC, New Delhi, tomorrow, the Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment (HMSJE) will give seven people with disabilities (PwDs) their Unique Disability ID (UDID) cards, which were created using the innovative Indian IQ testing technique.
The Minister will also present the one croreth UDID to a 2-year-old child called Vanshika Nand kishore Mane, demonstrating the UDI project’s broad effect. On January 27, 2017, the first UDID was generated in Datia, Madhya Pradesh.
The indigenous IQ testing method was created by the National Institute for the Empowerment of Persons with Intellectual Disabilities (NIEPID), Secunderabad, and is supported by the Government of India’s Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).
This technology, which is in line with our Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi’s Make in India goal, will be critical in measuring the cognitive capacity of those with impairments. The Minister will dedicate this tool to the Nation, marking an important step toward self-sufficiency and inclusion.
According to the 2011 census, India has 2.68 crore Persons with Disabilities (PwDs), also known as Divyangjan.
In 2017, the Government of India’s Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (DEPwD) launched the Unique Disability ID (UDID)Card project, a ground-breaking initiative aiming at giving Divyangjans with a unique identification and developing a complete database for strategic welfare planning.
