Starting April 1, people with visual disabilities may find it easier to avail public transport. The transport department has directed DTC, DMRC and DIMTS that the seat behind the driver in all public transport vehicles be reserved for the blind from April 1. A crew member of the bus has to ensure that the blind person occupies the seat during time of boarding.
At present, while DTC and cluster buses have reserved seating for the differently abled, private mini buses don't have such reservations.
