North Zone Consultation on New Disability Act in January
D.N.I.S. News Network, India: At the National Consultation organised by National Centre for Promotion of Employment for Disabled People (N.C.P.E.D.P.) in October this year, a consensus was reached to take the demand for a new disability law forward and to the grassroots. Accordingly, it was decided that 4 Zonal Consultations would held. The first of these, the North Zone Consultation, will be held in New Delhi in the later part of January.
The North Zone Consultation will be held in collaboration with Action for Ability Development and Inclusion (A.A.D.I.). It may be mentioned that around 80 renowned disabled rights activists from across the country attended the National Consultation on ‘The Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Respect for Dignity, Effective Participation and Inclusive Opportunities) Act, 2010’. It was agreed that the Disability Act of 1995 was archaic and hence it was time to go in for a new comprehensive Act based on U.N.C.R.P.D. rather than going in for Amendments to the Disability Act of 1995, as suggested by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment.
