  • State-wide practices

     

    For their election held in 2014, Maharashtra ensured that a few things were taken care of when it came to facilitating the Persons with Disabilities in the State. Across the State, Maharashtra employed the following good practices – 

    • Special camps for awareness and education of PwDs about electoral processes were organized in various districts. Government departments, NSS, NCC, NYKS, Scouts and Guides, and NGOs/CSOs were roped in as partners for the special camps
    • PwD Icons were appointed in various districts to appeal to PwDs and urge them to involve themselves in the electoral process.
    • The State election machinery was sensitized through intensive training programmes that made them ready to handle any situation at hand. 
    • Investment was made in the production and distribution of accessible awareness resources to educate and inform PwDs about electoral processes.
