Exceptions from All Fees for Differently abled CA students
The institution of chartered accountants of India always would be there to provide excellent service to their students. Now I’m telling about one of those services. ICAI provides some essential facilities to physically disabled and handicapped students (ICAI mentioned them as Differently abled students).
Differently abled students are defined as follows:
(a) Blindness – “Blindness” refers to a condition where a person suffers from any of the following conditions, namely:
- · total absence of sight;
- · visual acuity not exceeding 6/60 or 20/200 (snellen) in the better eye with correcting lenses;
- · limitation of the field of vision subtending an angle of 20 degree or worse.
(b) Low vision – “Low vision” means a person with impairment of visual functioning even after treatment or standard refractive correction but who uses or is potentially capable of using vision for the planning or execution of a task with appropriate assistive device.
(c) Leprosy cured – “Leprosy cured” means any person who has been cured of leprosy but is suffering from
- · loss of sensation in hands or feet as well as loss of sensation and paresis in the eye and eyelid but with no manifest deformity;
- · manifest deformity and paresis but having sufficient mobility in their hands and feet to enable them to engage in normal economic activity;
- · extreme physical deformity as well as advanced age which prevents him from undertaking any gainful occupation, and the expression “leprosy cured” shall be constructed accordingly.
