The objective of the Balaji Institute of Surgery, Research and Rehabilitation for the Disabled (BIRRD)
is to provide medical treatment/facilities to those suffering from polio myelitis, cerebral palsy, congenital anomalies, spinal injuries, and the orthopaedically handicapped, particularly the poor, irrespective of religion, caste or creed.
In 1994, BIRRD was converted to a Trust. TTD provides a matching grant to the Trust, equivalent to the donations it receives. A proposal for 100% exemption under the Indian Income Tax Act, for donations to BIRRD is under consideration.
