'Quota for physically challenged not implemented'

He was speaking at a function held to celebrate 15th anniversary of the Mobility India (MI), a non-governmental organisation for the physically challenged persons here on Sunday.

Going down the memory lane on the occasion, Mobility India Director Albina Shankar said, the non-government organisation was started with just two persons. And today, the Mobility India has its own institution and has expanded to even rural areas, he added.

Mobility India Founder Chapal Khasnabis elaborated on the modest beginning of the organisation and said that the initial days were extremely difficult. They started out with $ 10,000 given by Action Aid. Later, the MI staff managed to get land from the BDA. An amount of Rs 3 crore was collected from partner organisations to construct the building, he revealed. A souvenir about Mobility India was released. A few staff members of the MI were felicitated.
