About the Webinar

Through this webinar, we hope to shed light on how the provision negates the dignity and personhood of the disabled is contrary to constitutional and legal principles.

We hope that the webinar will serve as a plea for the reconsideration of the provision so that it does not become law. India's disabled children and disabled citizens deserve nothing less.
