New Hope for Accessibility Options Reaches Disabled Indians


1
When it comes to disability rights, those in the developing world are often hit the hardest. However, in India a movement is now underway that could see a radical shift in accessibility options for disabled citizens. According to a new report, this summer the Indian government will hold its first ever audit to check the accessibility of India’s public buildings.
It’s a move that many disabled activists in India think is a long time coming. That’s because although India ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities and passed The Disability Act of 1995, real reforms have been staggeringly slow in coming.
