National Institute for Hearing Handicapped

Schemes & Facilities provided by Central & State Government:


Ali Yavar Jung National Institute for the Hearing Handicapped is an autonomous Institute in the field of Hearing Handicapped rehabilitation in India. It was started in 1983 under the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Government of India, to serve people with hearing handicap through various activities.

The institute and its regional centres provide comprehensive diagnostic, therapeutic, educational and vocational services to the hearing and speech impaired. An interdisciplinary team consisting of audiologists, speech pathologists, special educators, psychologists, social workers, ENT specialists, pediatricians and neurologists attempt to maintain a high standard of rehabilitation services.

The services are as follows:

The institute provides the best possible services in terms of evaluation, therapeutic treatment and hearing aid fitment. The institute provides free services for persons with hearing handicap whose monthly income is below Rs. 5000/-. The beneficiaries can take prior appointment, if they desire. Patients are advised to bring their monthly income certificate from the Tahasildar, MP, MLA, Municipal Counsellor, Sarpanch, and Employer. As the evaluation process may take 2/3 days, and due to non-availability of sufficient accommodation at the institute, patients have to make their own arrangement to stay at Mumbai.

Training Programmes

Top priority is given to training since well–developed manpower is one of the most important prerequisites for better networking of the services. It is through training that a cadre of highly specialized professionals, as well as grass–root level personnel are created to meet the needs of persons with hearing handicap.

To meet this need, the Institute conducts several long–term and short–term training programmes at AYJNIHH, Mumbai and its Regional Centres at New Delhi, Kolkata, Secunderabad and Bhubaneshwar.
