Feature


  • Status of Implementation of Disability Legislation in North East States of India

    National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People’s Disability Law Unit (DLU) - North East in Shishu Sarothi, a leading N.G.O. working for children with cerebral palsy in Assam, has tried to assess the extent of implementation of the disability related laws in the North East region including Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Mizoram, Meghalaya, Nagaland and Tripura.Though responses were sought from Sikkim, none were forthcoming. So this state has not figured in this report. The assessment has been done through interactions, workshops and discussions with N.G.O.s, associations of people with disabilities and key stakeholders. The Report prepared by Shishu Sarothi throws light on the lack of implementation of the disability enactments in this region.
