This is very valuable information for the disabled people and they or their caretakers should take advantage of this and contact the nearest centre for making a UDID card.
Nowadays there are many facilities extended by many agencies to disabled persons. For example the airport administration provides a helper and wheel chair to the needy persons. So in such a situation making this card will be very handy for the disabled persons as they can conveniently produce it anywhere and based on that the requisite facilities will be extended to them by the concerned entity.
