Will the Minister of COMMUNICATIONS be pleased to state:

(a)       whether the Ministry has received official notification with regard to making post offices compatible for the physically challenged persons with wheel chair;

(b)       whether despite repeated requests and reminders, the sub-post office at Yelahanka Old Town, Bengaluru (Pin-560064) has refused to make its post office compatible for physically challenged persons with wheel chair; and

(c)        whether the Ministry will take action against the erring officers and make all buildings under its charge compatible for the differently-abled persons?

ANSWER

THE MINISTER OF STATE (IC) OF THE MINISTRY OF COMMUNICATIONS &
 MINISTER OF STATE IN THE MINISTRY OF RAILWAYS
(SHRI MANOJ SINHA)

(a)        The Department of Posts has received official notification from the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment regarding provisions for making government buildings accessible for persons with disabilities within the limits of their economic capacity and development.

(b)          Yelahanka Old Town Post Office is located on the ground floor and it is easily accessible to the physically challenged persons with wheel chair. No request/complaint has been received about any inconvenience faced by physically challenged persons with wheel chair visiting the Yelahanka Old Town Post Office.

(c)          Department of Posts, Ministry of Communications, is making all out efforts to make all departmental buildings under its charge compatible for the differently abled persons within the available funds in a phased manner and, therefore, situation warranting action against erring officials does not arise. Construction of ramps and rails in all new post office departmental buildings has been made a mandatory feature.
