Railways to Provide Braille Signage in Passenger Coaches for Visually Impaired Passengers

As a part of its social commitment to make Railways more friendly towards specially abled passengers, 

 Indian Railways has decided to provide Braille stickers in coaches to facilitate visually impaired passengers. Presently coaches are provided with signage, instructions, seat numbers etc. which are mostly in the form of vinyl stickers/metallic plates and have no Braille characters and can not be read by visually impaired passengers. Now it is planned to use stickers with metallic base with printed characters embedded into it.
