November 5, 2014: MICA, India's premiere management institute in Strategic Marketing and Communication, today announced its plans to transform its campus into a disability-friendly one. The additions in the campus will comprise of facilities for special students who are living their dream of studying at MICA. The first phase of work is likely to complete by Jan 2015.
To ensure an easy access, the whole campus area will be made disability-friendly. Significant additions will include ramps in all the buildings on campus, to facilitate easy access to the ground floors, including all the hostel blocks. The institute will also resurface all the walkways and pathways, which currently have brick-edge con-surfaces. These will be replaced with RCC finish or paving blocks to make them smoother. Thus, movement around the campus including the student's service area, the micafe plaza, parking areas etc. will be smoother and more accessible. There will also be an addition of a traction lift and hydraulic lifts in the buildings, which will allow quick access to the classrooms.
Commenting on the initiative, Dr. Nagesh Rao, President and Director, MICA said "We are glad to set up disability-friendly infrastructure at MICA. All the ramps, lifts, resurfacing of walkways and pathways will be positioned as per standard architectural norms. They will be technically and aesthetically sound, as also enhance ease and access to the buildings for the physically challenged students".
Established in 1991, MICA is the first residential institute in the country and perhaps in the Asia-Pacific region, dedicated to creating Leadership in Strategic Marketing and Communication. To know more visit: www.mica.ac.in
