    You should have disability of at least 50% or more to claim this benefit. Also you will have to procure a medical certificate from any govt. hospital, stating the nature of your disability and also the panel of doctors should certify that, you can drive an automatic transmission vehicle but cannot drive a manual transmission vehicle.
