The Disability Certificate is the most important document and every person with disability must have this document. The disability certificate is necessary to avail any of the services and facilities provided by the government.

The medical board of doctors authorized by the Chief Medical Officer conducts assessments and ascertains the percentage of disability for the disability certificate. Any person with a disability (may be physical, visual, speech and hearing or mental) of more than 40%, is issued a disability certificate.

Note: A disability certificate is issued only to persons with disability and not to persons suffering from any illness or disease.
