Autism, or Autism Spectrum Disorder, is a neurological and developmental disorder that affects about ten million Indians. There are no resources or centers in India that provide comprehensive care to people who suffer from this spectrum.
India Autism Center (IAC), an initiative by Ratnabali Group, aspires to be the first of its kind development center in the world for individuals with autism. For this purpose, an MoU was signed with the West Bengal State Government at the Bengal Business Global Summit on 17th January, 2018 to start the 52-acre project at Sirakole on Diamond Harbour Road near Kolkata, India. The Center will be equipped with residential, day-care and vocational training facilities for its residents and visiting students and aims to be completed by 2022.
