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) Program
The CRE Program is an important aspect of RCI to update the knowledge and skills of the professionals so as to provide quality services to the people with disabilities. This aspect is carried out through workshops, seminars, short-term refresher courses, orientation programs  which are supported by RCI. Associations/ Institutions from Govt. / Non Govt. organizations are supported to conduct programmes for the benefit of professionals. RCI has been working with commitment to improve the standards of education of and training in the field of rehabilitation.

In this connection the Council keeps supporting the on going Continuing Rehabilitation Education (CRE) Programme being conducted at selected RCI approved Training Institution Nationwide such as at the Institution of INPA.
