Why the RPWD Bill matters to people with disabilities
December 5, 2016
India is the third largest technical and scientific manpower in the world and It is all set to make a leap into the future.
Recent advances has reached the grassroots among people with disabilities as well. This is clear from the new devices that are widely accepted and are benefiting the community.
Without strong laws there are several problems arising in the implementation of good practices at the national level. The new law has very high stakes for people with disabilities. It is the new ray of hope.
Imagine the impact it will have on the rights of people with disabilities.
Access to goods, premises and services will be increased. Laws and policies that have not implemented so far, due to lack of financial resources and commitment, will be implemented.
Milestones will be achieved in education, health and employment that will level the huge gap between people with disabilities and society at large.
This is why the Bill matters a lot to people with disabilities in India.
