Disabled persons in India face a large number of barriers in access to various facilities, both public and private. Problems in access are not limited to just the physical / built environment, but also to other facilities such as transport (road, rail and air transport facilities) and information (such as written/spoken material and information on computers / Internet.) This causes an impediment to the progress of disabled persons and their integration into the social mainstream. Disabled persons’ organizations have filed cases in the courts seeking directions to those responsible to take steps and measures to mitigate the challenges in access faced by disabled persons.
