Information and Broadcasting Ministry has decided to implement Accessibility Standards for Persons with Disabilities in television programmes for private TV channels from this Independence Day. This is a major step towards implementation of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act. 

In a significant beginning from this year’s Independence Day, the Ministry has asked Private Satellite News TV channels also to telecast a short programme on Independence Day celebrations, along with corresponding sign language interpretation today in the afternoon or evening. The channels have been told that they may either make their own programme with sign language interpretation, or they may carry a bulletin prepared by DD News free of cost if they wish. 

Information and Broadcasting Secretary Amit Khare said this while speaking at a function in Delhi. The Ministry was given Special Jury Award at this function for its path breaking work in making television accessible for people with hearing disabilities.
