Uttarakhand to get India's first commission for protecting rights of people with disabilities

Uttarakhand is India's first state to form a commission for the protection of the rights of persons with disabilities.

The cabinet accepted a proposal put forward by over 30,000 people with disabilities who went on strike from 19 June asking for a commission

They also demanded increasing the monthly pension and vocational education to students of disabilities.

Activists say the move is a much needed one and should be adopted by all states in India.
