A new chapter for the disabled


2
The Supreme Court observed that “employment is a key factor in the empowerment and inclusion of people with disabilities” in its judgment in theUnion of India v. National Federation of the Blind case (2013).
The verdict registered the “alarming reality” of disabled persons out of jobs, not because of their disabilities but due to social and physical barriers that prevent them from joining the workforce.
