70% increase in disabled applicants in Delhi University this year
There has been a major increase in the number of applications under the persons with disability category in Delhi University this year.
As per data, the number of students applying in PwD category is 70 percent more than last year.
It is assumed that the change in admission pattern is the result of the passage of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Bill, 2016.
Most of the applicants are candidates with physical disabilities. A few are from new categories like intellectual disability and neurological conditions and even blood disorders.
The RPWD bill has also included ‘dwarfism’ and acid-attack victims as well.
