PIL seeks amenities for disabled

PUNE: A city-based NGO has filed a public interest litigation (PIL) in the Bombay high court demanding disabled-friendly infrastructure at public places in Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad. The HC has listed the next hearing for March 14. Parisar — a city-based group working for sustainable urban transport – has demanded that footpaths, crossings, PMPML and Bus Rapid Transit System must fully comply with the Disabilities Act and various policies and guidelines accessible for senior citizens and the disabled. Parisar has argued before the HC that complying with the Act is well within the capacity of the two municipal corporations since they have planned large projects with substantial budgets.
