Dear All

New Year Greetings from AYJNISHD(D)!

At the outset, I am glad to share about my new assignment as Director, AYJNISHD (D) by the Dept. Of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities, Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, New Delhi, to lead the institute, its regional centres and CRCs in line with the vision, mission and expectations. I have assumed the role as the Director on 23rd January 2019. After serving 22 years as a Faculty – Education of AYJNISHD (D), this position as the Director brings to me to face with newer complex challenges and responsibilities on a wide variety of issues at pan India level. I am committed to take the Institute and its legacy to newer heights by bringing in the best practices in Re/habilitation, Clinical services, Outreach extension services, Human resource development, Research and so on and so forth. It’s also imperative to focus upon the conceptualisation and implementation of various schemes and programmes of the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities, Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment, Govt. of India from time to time.

It’s our endeavour to retain and thrive more aggressively in empowering, uplifting and influencing the lives of Individuals with speech and hearing disabilities. This could only be achieved through meaningful contributions, enhanced collaboration, dedication and unrelenting support from each one of you.
