Disability inclusion:
Disability inclusion has continued to evolve in India. India signed and ratified the United Nations
Convention on the Rights of Persons With Disability (UN CRPD) in 2006. It replaced the old legislation
on disability titled the People with Disabilities ACT of 2005 with a new rights-based legislation titled
‘Rights of persons with disabilities ACT 2016’. This ACT covers 21 disability categories as compared
to 7 categories covered by the earlier legislation.Over 10% of the World’s population of persons with disability around 7 Crore (70 million people) live
in India. (World Bank figures).
