Is The Pwd Act An Answer To The Challenges Of Mainstreaming Disability?

Aabha Sagar, Ph.D Scholar at University School of Law and Legal Studies, GGSIPU, Dwarka


Disabled people’s interactions with societal norms and practises tend to generate a variety of barriers for them. There are a variety of reasons why persons with disabilities are directly or blatantly marginalised, whether they be historical, political, economic, psychological, in sports, or technology. The focus of the last two decades of disability awareness growth has been on mainstreaming disabilities in education and the economy. As a result, it’s critical to comprehend such hurdles before making recommendations to mainstream disability rights. Examining the national and international legal framework for the rights of disabled people becomes simpler once a deeper understanding of such cross-sectional obstacles and how to overcome them has been attained. In such an analytical investigation, the question of whether the legislative framework is the solution to mainstreaming disability and how effective it is arises. Comparing the problems caused by barriers with the solutions provided by the Persons with Disabilities Act would provide a roadmap for reforming the loopholes and taking the appropriate steps. The main objectives behind this research paper are provide substructure of the fundamental acts regarding PWDs, try to understand that what are the obstacles they face after having these laws, and how these existing frameworks are useful for them.
