Assistance to Persons with Disabilities for Purchase/ Fitting of Aids / Appliances

    Scheme of Assistance to Persons with Disabilities  for Purchase/Fitting of Aids /Appliances (ADIP Scheme)

    The ADIP Scheme is in operation since 1981 with the main objective to assist the needy persons with disabilities in procuring durable, sophisticated and scientifically manufactured, modern, standard aids and appliances that can promote their physical, social and psychological rehabilitation by reducing the effects of disabilities and enhance their economic potential.  Assistive devices are given to PwDs with an aim to improve their independent functioning and to arrest the extent of disability and occurrence of secondary disability. The aids and appliances supplied under the Scheme must have due certification. The scheme also envisages conduct of corrective surgeries, wherever required, before providing an assistive device. Under the Scheme, grants-in-aid are released to various implementing agencies  (Artificial Limbs Manufacturing Corporation of India (ALIMCO)/National Institutes/Composite Regional Centres/District Disability Rehabilitation Centres/ State Handicapped Development Corporations/ NGOs, etc.) for purchase and distribution of aids and assistive devices.  The Scheme was last revised w.e.f. 1.4.2022 and further modified and approved for continuation during the remaining period of the 15th Finance Commission i.e., up to 31.3.2026.
