N.C.P.E.D.P. releases 5 baseline reports

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: 2007 was a year of landmark developments for the disability sector. India ratified U.N.C.R.P.D. and the XIth Five Year Plan carried a whole chapter on disability. However, 2 years since then, both remain just on paper.

N.C.P.E.D.P. in association with Diversity and Equal Opportunity Centre, Bengaluru carried out 5 baseline studies on the current status of the policies and schemes for people with disabilities in the area of health, employment, accessibility, communication and information technology and rural development.

This was part of a three year project called “Mainstreaming of Disability in the National Agenda – Policy to Practice” that N.C.P.E.D.P. is working on in partnership with the British High Commission.

The objective of the studies was to review existing policies and schemes on physical infrastructure facilities that could and should affect the lives of people with disabilities and to analyse their impact with respect to the actual needs of disabled people. The studies also reviewed the budgetary allocations and their utilisation, and listed out emerging concerns and basic recommendations for further consideration by policy makers.
