Dear Listers:

Greetings from the Eyeway Helpdesk!

Follow below the Daily Eyeway Alerts:

1. News-

The Bombay High Court Wednesday directed an expert committee set up by the
Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment to look into the issue of
quantification of learning disability (LD) in terms of percentage. The
committee has been set up to look into the Rights of Persons with
Disabilities Bill, 2014. The Bill will replace the Persons with
Disabilities (Equal  Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full
Participation) Act, 1995.  “The expert committee set up by the Ministry of
Social Justice and Empowerment should consider the issue of the percentage
of learning disability,” said Chief Justice Mohit Shah and Justice A K
Menon. The HC said that the committee should consider this issue even if it
did not come under its existing guidelines. The HC was hearing a suo motu
public interest litigation by two psychiatrists. The PIL stated that on
March 25, parents of children with LD had received a letter from the
National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), saying students would not be
granted a writer, but would be granted extra time. The definition of a
person with disability is that he or she should be suffering from 40 per
cent disability. The state government had said that it could not give a
certificate to say whether persons with LD had less or more than 40 per
cent disability. More
