Up against barriers

People with disabilities find it difficult to access services that most of us take for granted. Here are suggestions from them on making things better
 Having access to education, a job, being able to open a bank account, to save, to take a loan — all these may appear as basic things available to all. But these simple services are still not within the reach of a sizeable population — persons with disability. Data from the 2011 census shows that the disabled population in India has increased at the rate of 2 per cent per year in the decade since 2011 and is about 26.8 million. This is 2.1 per cent of the country’s population.
