This section will give you general awareness about laws related to disables.
In our country, laws exist to protect the rights of the disabled, avoid discrimination and enable them to enjoy equal rights . the stakeholders i.e. disabled people, employers, education institutes etc are not always aware of the laws prevailing in their region. Due to lack of adequate knowledge about the laws, the disabled often fail to enjoy the benefits which they are otherwise eligible to. On the other hand, this might lead to unintentional violation of the law by the employers, education institutes etc. For example, an employer is not sure about things like under which law does their organization fall, to what extent do they need to follow the law and what measures do they require to take to avoid discrimination and provide equal rights to the disabled. For all that, a general awareness of laws is required to both disables and others.
this section contains important informations about laws for disable people, legal articles, and also the most powerful law for disable persons in india (persons with disability act).
the section has some important circulars, orders, and guidelines issued in the interest of physically handicap persons.
please note, that the primary aim of providing these circulars, orders, and guidelines is to aware and educate, but these may prove useful while availing any facility by showing the printed copy of the associated document which can be varified by it's circular number, date of issuing, etc.
