The Project 

Helping the handicapped persons to fully participate in social and national life of the country is one of the important programmes of the Bharat Vikas Parishad. Beginning with the establishment of its first Viklang Centre in Delhi in 1990, there are now 13 Viklang Sahayata Kendras in various states, which provide artificial limbs free of cost to needy persons through their centres as well as by organising camps.

These centres provide artificial limbs, calipers, hearing aids, medicines, special shoes, and tri- cycles. In addition, there are mobile workshops which manufacture artificial limbs and service Viklang Camps organised by various Branches. Some of the centres have taken up special programme to help polio victims by organising their operations.

It may mentioned that our centres are equipped with the most modern equipment to manufacture artificial limbs and    other attachments. The trained technicians at these establishments, through R&D, have developed improved limbs  that are not only very  light but also highly efficient. The limbs  manufactured by the centres are rapid fit, cosmetically and functionally close to human walking, running, climbing, swimming driving etc. The disabled persons, after the fitment, can even lift heavy weights and work in workshop and farms. 
Bharat Vikas Parishad is the only non-governmental organisation that renders service to the largest number of handicapped persons in the country year after year.

Apart from providing artificial limbs and other aids to the disabled persons, Bharat Vikas Parishad is now actively working for their rehabilitation so as to enable them to live an independent life. A number of such centres are functioning in various parts of the country.

During the year 2015-16, number of artificial limbs and other aids  provided by the Viklang Kendras and branches is indicated below:

(a) By BVP branches at Viklang camps 8,872
(b) By   Viklang Kendras at their own centres 6,038
