Fact check: Has accessibility for PwDs improved in the last four years?


3
The Prime Minister launched the Accessible India Campaign (AIC) in December 2015 to create universal accessibility for Persons with Disabilities (PwDs) in the Built Environment, Transport, and Information & Communication Technology (ICT) ecosystem.
The campaign is based on the principles of the Social Model of Disability, that disability is caused by the way society is organised, and not the person’s limitations and impairments. The campaign’s vision is to build an inclusive society in which equal opportunities are provided for the growth and development of PwDs so that they can lead productive, safe and dignified lives.
