Initiatives and measures undertaken by University of Delhi for students with disabilities

Activities and Services

The main problem faced by Persons with Disabilities and those belonging to the marginalized sections of society stem from disabling environment and socio - cultural and economic barriers. Discrimination against any person on the grounds of his/her disability or physical limitations and minority status is a gross violation of universally accepted principles of equality and human rights and even constitutional obligations. Their problems in the field of higher education are a matter of great concern which needs urgent attention.

Besides ensuring equality of opportunities for SC, ST, OBC and PWD students, the Equal Opportunity Cell of the University also strives to conserve the rich socio-cultural heritage of India by working towards the building of a harmonious and equitable community in the University which fosters the Principles of harmony and brotherhood. Every attempt is made to promote the pluralism of India at the micro level in the context of the University by ensuring that the safeguards in favour of minorities enshrined in the Indian Constitution are protected and every person of the University is able to exercise the freedom of thought, expression and belief.

Due care is taken to preserve the linguistic and religious identities signifying the diversity of the country. This is done by making special efforts to include students from minority communities in all activities of the University and by organizing sensitization programmes to promote the inclusive character of the University. It is ensured that no discrimination of any kind and in any form takes place against any student of the minority community and that their specific constitutional rights are protected.

The Indian Society is singular in terms of the multifarious hues it has absorbed in its fabric. Living within its clinch are numerous groups that are segregated on the basis of language, ethnicity, class, caste, religion etc. This inequitable situation warrants a redemption which is possible through Equal Opportunity measures and policies.

To address these and other urgent issues concerning SC, ST, OBC and PWD, the Equal Opportunity Cell was set up by the University of Delhi on 27th June, 2006 and a policy Draft was released ensuring a barrier free, equitable and accessible space to the PWDs in the field of Higher Education.
