Background

Article 21 of Indian Constitution recites that “No person shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to a procedure established by law” and appropriately this Article is equated with Magna Carta of 1215 AD, by the philanthropists elsewhere. Going further with the sociological interpretation of Article 21, it secures basically two rights, the “Right to Life” and the “Right to Personal Liberty”. The “Right to Life” has a much wider meaning in a civilized society, which include the “Right to live with dignity”, “Right to health” and the “Right to earn a livelihood”. The “Right of Personal Liberty” shall include the “Right of Access Public Utilities” as has been offered to any normal citizen, by the nation.

For Persons with Different abilities (PwDs) universal accessibility is critical for enabling them to gain access for equal opportunity. They must be empowered to live independently and participate fully in all aspects of life in an inclusive society. Sections 44, 45 and 46 of Persons with Different abilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection of Rights and Full Participation) Act, 1995 categorically provides for non-discrimination in transport, non-discrimination on the road and non-discrimination in built up environment respectively. United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Different abilities (UNCRPD), to which India is a signatory, under Article 9 casts obligations on the Governments for ensuring to PwDs accessibility to information, transportation, physical environment, communication technology and accessibility to services including emergency services.

Apart from covering 21 categories of different abilities in place of 7 categories under the 1995 Act, the new Rights of Persons with Different abilities Act, 2016 lays complete emphasis on one’s rights – Right to equality and opportunity, Right to inherit and own property, Right to home and family and reproductive Rights among others. Regarding accessibility it has set a two year deadline for the government to ensure that persons with different abilities get barrier free access to physical infrastructure and transport systems are also noteworthy. Additionally, it will also hold the private sector accountable for any aberrations. This also includes educational institutions ‘recognized’ by the government such as privately-owned universities and colleges. A path-breaking feature of the new Act is the increase in reservation in government jobs from 3% to 4%.
