Facilitates easy and independent mobility: Collector

NAGAPATTINAM: State Bank of India has gone disabled-friendly with the installation of a ramp one each at the bank and its ATM counter adjacent to the branch for the benefit of the physically challenged.

Inaugurating the facility, Collector C. Munianathan stated that ramps would facilitate easy and independent mobility of the physically challenged, considering that about 1200 of them had transactions with the SBI branch here.

Mr. Munianathan requested other Central, State government institutions, organisations and banks to follow suit.

It is worth reckoning that the Supreme Court directive had made it mandatory for all public places to ensure disabled-friendly accessibility facilities.

P. Mathiazhagan, Chief Branch Manager, SBI and K. Murali, Manager, SBI, S. Yamunabai, District Disabled Rehabilitation Officer were present.
