Feature

  • D.R.G. demands a Separate Ministry on Disability Issues
    Disabled Rights Group (D.R.G.) has finally voiced its demand for a separate Ministry for disability issues or it should be shifted to Ministry of Human Resource Development (M.H.R.D.). And why not? Even after almost a decade of the enactment of The Disability Act, 1995, nothing substantial has been done for the betterment of the disabled people, thanks to the low priority given to disability by the Ministry of Social Justice & Empowerment (M.S.J.E.), which mainly focuses on Scheduled Castes & Minorities and follows a welfare approach. Disability sector feels that the current administrative infrastructure is inadequate and lacks the power. Disability has to be pegged at a higher level – at the Ministerial level. Only then will it be possible for it to play an effective role of a nodal agency to coordinate with other Ministries / Departments at the highest level, examines Chitra S. Shankar.
