Harmonizing Laws with the UNCRPD

Date: 01/05/2010

Document: Read the full report here.

Edited By Dr. Amita Dhanda, Rajive Raturi
In order to assist the Indian Government
to fulfill these obligations under the UN CRPD, a coalition of the Human
Rights Law Network, National Association of the Deaf (NAD) and the Deaf Way
Foundation initiated a series of consultations with disabled people and their organizations
on the changes required in Indian laws to fulfill the CRPD mandate. In
order to facilitate focused discussion, the Coalition commissioned concept papers
on the changes required in the existing Indian laws to fulfil the requirements of
the CRPD. To ensure that the particular concerns of any disabled group do not fall
within the cracks, the concept papers looked at law reform from the perspective of
different disabilities. Thus, the concept papers addressed the concerns of persons
with visual impairment; persons with orthopedic impairments; persons with intellectual
and developmental impairments; persons living with mental illness and
persons with hearing impairment( copies annexed). Each of the concept papers
were at first discussed at a meeting of the particular disability group and were
subsequently deliberated upon at a cross disability consultation.
