Even Delhi railway station is a nightmare…

Every main railway station should be accessible to disabled persons. Lifts should be provided to connect different platforms through overbridges. There should be at least one compartment with a ramp or low-level gate, as in the case of metro trains. Train compartments should be designed like those of the metro.
INITIALLY, seven types of disabilities were recognised by the governemnt, but their number was extended to 21 in the 2016 disability Act. These include physical disability, mental disability, and physical as well as mental disability, multiple disability, low vision, thalassaemia etc.
