Disability Rights

An estimated 70 million disabled Indians are treated as second-class citizens and are forced to confront segregation, discrimination, barriers and stereotypes. An entire range of disability issues such as the causes of disability, care, rehabilitation, empowerment, mainstreaming through education, employment, health care, and transportation wait to be practically resolved.

Persons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunity, Protection of Civil Rights, and Full Participation) Act was enacted in India in 1995 and came into force on 1st January 1996. This Act provides measures to promote and protect the rights of the persons with disabilities.

We provide legal aid, take up high-impact public interest litigation, provide access to the legal system and campaigns to improve facilities for persons with all types of disabilities.
