    TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN:

    The strict requirement by commercial establishments for the presentation of PWD ID’s from persons availing of the rights, priviliges and benefits [discount on purchases and services] granted to PWD’S under the law, I believe defeats the purpose and spirit of the law when the disabilty of a PWD is quite apparent.

    One thing, I hope many will agree with me that ID’s can be easily forged while actual and apparent physical disabilty [ which can be recognized by the bare eye] cannot be feigned.

    Therefore, to avoid irritants/conflicts between the one availing of the benefits and commercial establishment/s, may this humble self be allowed to suggest.
    I guess, it would be better that ID’s, as a pre-quisite or condition sine qua non, to be able to avail of the discounts and other priviliges be dispensed with in cases where the ” person’s disability is very apparent “.

    If it cannot be done by administrative measures then it behooves upon the NCDA to work [lobby] for the immediate amendment of the law to effect the aforementioned purpose.

    Hoping for your kind utmost and indulgence.

    If the aforesaid
