Disability Laws in India: A Study

Rajib Bhattacharyya

Abstract


Disability is a concept which is understood and interpreted by various social thinkers, social workers and jurists keeping in mind the inherent philosophy of the term in its actual sense. Though the term “disability” carries with it the assumption of a lack or deficiency whether physical, mental or sensory in respect of some people but there are lots of exemples that sometimes these people proved themselves as differently abled person by their intellectuality or positive attitudes and outlook towards life.

Hence, the Rights and Laws of disabled persons need to be understood and studied from various perspectives including human rights and various other laws in India which will ultimately fill up the differences or mitigate the gap between the abled and the differently abled persons in their attainment of persona and dignity in true sense of the terms.

In this research work the researcher is giving much emphasis on the various legal provisions and Laws available in our country and make a systematic study on how these laws have contributed towards the development of legal status of the disabled persons in India.
