Government of India began taking special
interest in the education and rehabilitation of persons with
disabilities as early as 1947. But it was only in 1986 when Govt.
of India decided that a Body should be set up to stadardise
courses for different aspects of Special Education. The
Rehabilitation Council was therefore, setup as a registered
society in 1986. Parliament enacted Rehabilitation Council of
India Act in 1992 and on 22nd June, 1993 RCI became statutory
body. And ever since then, RCI has been developing and reviewing
its courses from time to time to ensure that they are updated in
the light of advances in technology and pedagogical techniques.
This is an ongoing process which is uninterrupted.
Continuing Rehabilitation Education (CRE)
The CRE Program is an important aspect of RCI
to update the knowledge and skills of the professionals so as to

aspect is carried out through workshops, seminars, short-term
