In India, deafness is the most common disability accounting of more than 6.3 million sufferers. It has been estimated that four in every 1000 children suffer from severe to profound hearing loss. Around 100,000 babies are in-born with this disability. The estimated childhood onset deafness was found to be 2-4% [1,2].
