We have been trying to bring to the notice of all, the issues ofinaccessible public buildings and places for a long time now! ThePersons with Disabilities (Equal Opportunities, Protection ofRights and Full Participation) Act was passed by the IndianParliament in 1995. The Act mandates non-discrimination intransportation and in the built environment. Even after morethan five years since the passage of the Act, nothing much haschanged for the 70 million disabled citizens living in the country.
It seems that the people of (state name of city/town you areworking in) have been indifferent and insensitive to ourrepeated appeals. Five years is a long time for any agency toimplement the law! (A copy of The Disability Act, 1995, isenclosed.)
(state name of your organization) therefore, is conductingDisability Audits of select public buildings in Delhi to see howaccessible they are for persons with disabilities. The objective of conducting these Disability Audits is to identify the extent of the problem regarding access to public building in the capital city of India for persons with different disabilities to create awareness on the issue. (state name of your organization) and itsobjectives.
If you look closely, you will realize that education, training,employment, rehabilitation services, recreation, and evenmedical treatment is beyond the reach of the disabled peopleliving in the city. The seemingly simple acts of reaching theoffice, boarding the bus, going to the shop to buy a shirt, goingto a cinema hall to see a movie, filing a complaint at the policestation, dialing the phone to know the timings of a train, takingyour body weight on the machine, going to the post office orbank, entering a school or college, can all be very taxing andeven humiliating experiences for people with various types ofdisabilities. The nature of challenges may vary for personswith physical, visual or hearing impairments, but theproblem is the same- inaccessibility, insensitivity,discrimination - leading to what else but isolation!
The Disability Audit Team of (state name of yourorganization) would like you to look into this crucial issue andtake the necessary action to make the (state name of thebuilding/institution being evaluated by your organization).Completely accessible for persons with different types ofdisabilities. The Design Manual for Barrier Free Environment andthe CPWD Guidelines are also enclosed for your perusal.
