Finally, More Than Just Lip Service For People With Disabilities


2
Since the time it came into force more than two months ago, the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016 (RPWD Act) has been severely criticisedfor being a half-hearted attempt at ensuring empowerment of persons with disabilities.
What was touted to be a game changer for persons with disabilities, critics of the law have argued, was in fact nothing more than a sloppily drafted litany of many empty promises. However, the recently notified Rights of Persons with Disabilities Rules, 2017 (RPWD Rules) framed by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment (Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities) plug many of the loopholes in the RPWD Act and make it more robust, thereby offering respite to millions of persons with disabilities in India.
