Delhi Metro has been a boon for the people of Delhi and with all the good work they’ve been doing lately, DMRC has been conferred with an award that’s truly well-deserved. Here’s more on this happy news!
Some Happy News | December 3rd is International Day of Persons with Disabilities and under the aegis of the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, national awards are conferred across 14 categories. Our beloved Delhi Metro has bagged the National Award for the Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (Divyangjan) by creating a barrier-free environment for them.
All Delhi Metro stations are built with access facilities like kerb cut at the footpath, handrails at appropriate heights, ramps with appropriate gradients and lifts big enough for wheelchairs. The stations also have audible signage in lifts, braille signage in lifts and washrooms, too! The Managing Director, Mangu Singh, received the award from Vice President M. Venkaiah Naidu at a ceremony at Vigyan Bhawan.
Now, this is a well-deserved win and we’re applauding all the hard work that DMRC does.
