Designation CHAIRPERSON, NATIONAL TRUST & Chief Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities

I am happy to join as Chairperson of the Board of the National Trust w.e.f. 01.09.2016.  It gives me immense pleasure to know that the National Trust, a Statutory Body under Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (Divyangjans), working for the welfare of persons with Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Mental Retardation and Multiple Disabilities, has launched the New Website and 10 New Schemes and has taken the initiative for online processing of all its schemes and activities as a part of the “Digital India” campaign. 

This online Scheme Management System (SMS) has made the National Trust working transparent and accountable. 

I hope these Schemes will be very effective and play a major role in improving the quality of life of persons with these four disabilities, the National Trust deals in.

I request all the Trustees to cooperate me in achieving the objectives of the National Trust.

I also request to all the Registered Organizations (ROs) to join hands with us and ensure that maximum advantage of the Schemes of the National Trust is provided to the persons with these four disabilities.
