Centre sets up National Commission for Disabled Persons

DNIS News Network – The central government has decided to set up National Commission for Disabled People to address the needs of disabled population of India.

It is part of Prime Minister’s new initiatives for social justice for the underprivileged and disabled people.

It has also been one of the crucial demands of the Disabled Rights Group (DRG), a non-political rights-based organisation working in the area of disability.

Another major demand of DRG was to shift the office of the Chief Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities from Noida to Central Delhi. This demand has also been met. The office is in the process of being shifted to Sarojini Bhawan, 6 Bhagwan Das Road, New Delhi –110001.
