"BUDS School will be implemented in all local bodies. The first bilingual school for the deaf and hearing impaired will be set up soon.

An amount of Rs 21.5 crore has been sanctioned for Anuyatra, a comprehensive differently-abled management program. The National Center for Assisted Health Technology will be enabled to raise awareness of assistive technology tools for differently-abled people. The service of the Model Early Intervention Center for the Deaf will be extended across the state," the chief minister said.
