- Educated and sensitized PwDs have been made Campus Ambassadors for motivating PwDs.
- Educated deaf and dumb PwDs are being motivated to work as BLOs.
- In Bhopal, Ujjain, Indore and Jabalpur districts, BRTS bus-stops have been made PwD-friendly and facilities like toilets, drinking water, ramps, shades etc, have been provided for their smooth transit and participation.
- Dummy ballot papers for visually impaired voters have been prepared and successfully used in the State Bye-Elections.
A visually- challenged Professor, Dr. Rohit Trivedi associated with the Government Sarojini Naidu Autonomus Girls College, Bhopal has been identified as State Icon.
