Abstract

Though the term "disability" implies a lack or deficiency in some people, whether physical, mental, or sensory, but they have the right to life, liberty, equality, security, and dignity by virtue of being human, but people with disabilities are frequently ostracised and discriminated against due to social indifference and psychological barriers, As a result, the rights and laws of disabled people must be comprehended and analysed from different perspectives, including human rights and multiple other laws in India, in order to eventually fill the gaps or bridge the gap between the able - bodied and differently abled people in their accomplishment of identity and integrity in the real sense of the terms. The disabled have inherent rights to respect for their human dignity, and regardless of the origin, nature, or severity of their disabilities, the current laws ensure their participation, but they are ineffective; the laws are foundation stones that are now fortified and unbalanced, and as a result, disabled people cannot fully realise their rights; modifying and establishing appropriate legislation that will protect their interest and empower their capabilities. It is only a shift in society's vision and creating a friendly environment can give a solution to this problem, This paper focuses on the numerous legal provisions and regulations available in our nation and conducts an extensive study into how these laws have contributed to the evolution of the legal status of disabled people in India.
