India’s First Blind-Friendly Railway Station Now Functional At Mysore

It’s great to see the Railway authorities take an initiative for the visually impaired passengers who opt for their services. The Mysore Railway station has introduced a blind-friendly map that describes the location and distance of entrance, platforms, counters, washrooms etc, schedule of trains, showing their arrival and departure time, the authorities have also put up 400 metal signage in Braille along the railings of the staircases leading various platforms.

Even the canteen will have a special menu that will be customized in braille. Being Indian is happy to see our country progressing by addressing basic concerns for people who deserve to lead a life as ‘normally’ as we do. All this couldn’t have been possible without the help of a very generous NGO called Anuprayaas who assisted the railways in making India’s first blind friendly railway station.
