This paper attempts to study the right of employment of the Persons with Disabilities, the various kinds of disabilities, the awareness level among the people and also make a brief analysis of the problems faced by the disabled people in relation to employment. This paper primarily tries to highlight the gap between the legal idealism of the objective and principles as laid down under the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, 2006 as well as The Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016 and the social reality of level of awareness amongst the people regarding the right of employment of persons with disabilities and the implementation of the said principles and objectives. The research work is essentially empirical in nature and is constricted within the limits of Behala locality which is a small locality in the city of Kolkata, India.
