Not a single disabled-friendly building in India, says countrywide audit

India's first accessibility check of buildings and public places has not found a single completely disabled-friendly building. This exposes just how poor facilities are for people with disabilities in the country.

The first phase of the audit was held across 31 cities as part of the PM's Accessible India campaign. It showed the pathetic state of toilets and other facilities for people with disabilities in public buildings, hospitals, railway stations and educational institutions.

Nearly all buildings had obstacles like drain covers or bad roads at the entrance. Almost 95% of the buildings did not have a toilet for people with disabilities.
