University launches disability access audit

Adhering to the Chandigarh Administration’s decision of making UT the first disabled-friendly city, NSS volunteers from Panjab University launched their access audit survey from the Vice-Chancellor Office here on Friday.
Programme Coordinator Navdeep Sharma said: “Accessibility has been one of the most neglected issues in the disability sector. The disabled in India remain confined to their homes as attempts to travel, entering buildings, parks or shops can be unsafe and humiliating. Environmental access is a legal entitlement for people with disabilities and should be vigorously enforced. Attitudinal changes have to be brought about among policy makers in the government and private sectors, design professionals, architects, manufacturers”.
