As per the Scheme for Assistance to Disabled Persons for Purchase/Fitting of Aids/Appliances (ADIP), Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment will recognize an Institute of national stature from each Zone to recommend children eligible under the Scheme for cochlear implant, with a ceiling of Rs.6.00 lakh per unit to be borne by the Government.
