asked the Minister of Health how many local authorities have not yet submitted schemes under the Blind Persons Act, 1920; how many schemes submitted have not yet been approved; and what action he has taken or proposes to take regarding those authorities which have not yet fulfilled their statutory duties?

32 local authorities have not yet submitted schemes under the Blind Persons Act, 1920. All schemes submitted have been approved or promised approval subject to modifications. 27 authorities have schemes under consideration, and I trust that the remaining authorities, five in number, will reconsider their decision in the matter at an early date.
