NCPEDP is conducting a legal aid program wherein legal counsel is provided to persons with disabilities in matters relating to but not limited to, employment, education, health, protection against abuse and violence etc.
Access to justice is a challenge for persons with disabilities. With inaccessible infrastructure at courts and police stations, it is difficult for people to use the law as a tool in availing their fundamental rights. We aim to create a platform and pave a way for everyone to access their rights. We also believe in making the entire justice system accessible and work towards it.
Legal consultations are provided to people who reach out to us with their grievances. The grievances are received from across the country through NCPEDP’s helpline number. The helpline is active on all days of the year. The grievances are routed to our panel of advocates who provide consultation and representation in the court of law wherever required.
Under the initiative, we are currently working on more than 50 such grievances of persons with disabilities whose rights have been violated and our several petitions are lined up in High Courts and Supreme Court.
