New building code aims at access for the disabled


1
New Delhi: The new National Building Code (NBC) will, for the first time, have a detailed chapter on making buildings and urban sites “accessible” and “barrier-free” for the elderly and persons with disabilities.

Most buildings and public spaces are inaccessible to India’s disabled, estimated at 2.68 crore, and the ministry of social justice and empowerment is keen to make “accessibility” a focus area in the draft code.
