Mr. Modi sought to know what steps are being taken to curb occasional cases of fraud and misuse in this scheme.

Reviewing the progress in Sugamya Bharat Abhiyan, the Prime Minister called for use of technology to evolve a mechanism to collect feedback from Divyang-jan, on accessibility issues being faced by them in public premises.
