D.R.G. Core Group making steady progress in drafting a new disability law
D.N.I.S. News Network, India: In the past few months since Disabled Rights Group (D.R.G.) started the campaign for a new law based on U.N.C.R.P.D., as opposed to the proposed amendments, D.R.G.s Core Group has been putting in days of hardwork towards drafting a new law. The good news is that till now 16 chapters have been drafted and are being circulated among stakeholders.
The enthusiasm of the Group can be gauged from the fact that they have even given a tentative name to the new law The Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Respect for Dignity, Effective Participation and Inclusive Opportunities) Act, 2010!
Some chapters were debated and discussed at the National Consultation on the new law in October last year and some more were taken up at the North and East Zone Consultations thereafter. The idea is to take the discussion to all stakeholders across disabilities, across the nation and to reach a consensus.
D.R.G. Core Group is planning to finish the rest of the chapters in the coming months and then these will be submitted to the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment for consideration.
For more information or to send in your feedback on the draft new law, please write to firstname.lastname@example.org.
