Video: Moving From Disability To Accessibility


1

The Persons with Disabilities Act was passed in 1995, but 20 years down the line, we are yet to see a fully accessible and a safe pedestrian environment for people with disabilities on Indian roads. Uneven paths, stairs, inadequate spacing of bollards, narrow passages, etc pose as hurdles for those with disability.

Fifteen per cent of India’s population has some form of disability, and full inclusion and equal participation of persons with disabilities is absolutely necessary. A disabled person should be able to commute between home, market, work place and other destinations conveniently and safely.
