RIGHTS OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY IN INDIA: LAWS, CASES, AND THE REALITY
By Priyanka Dadhich
A person with disability is being looked down on as the recipients of charity or objects of sympathy only without being considered on the basis of their potential. They are being denied basic human rights such as the right to live with dignity, right to employment, right to education, right to access to public places freely without any hurdles etc. There is a need to analyse whether the mindset of people has changed and has the government is playing an effective role in ensuring the enjoyment of the rights by disabled people. The role is judiciary is needed to be analysed to playing in the upliftment of the status of differently abled people in society and how it is ensuring the protection and implementation of their rights to provide them better life with dignity. For their development and to make them independent to live dignified and self-sufficient life they need to have support from the state as well as from the society.
