Student's RTI way to get disability certificate

Likhitha, a class nine student of Kendriya Vidyalaya MEGBangalore, was in a dilemma about how to obtain a physical disablilty certificate. She did not know how to apply but needed the certificate for concessions in travel and education. Likhitha approached the Right to Information centre, run
by some activists to help people file RTI applications. One of the activists at the centre, who did not want to be named, filed the RTI on her behalf as she was a minor and could not apply on her own. "We wanted to help her, especially because information can help the physically disabled people, to acquire certificates that would benefit them," said the person. "This RTI is an essential document for people who want to avail various benefits by getting a certificate."
