Case: K.J. Varghese v. State of Kerala & Ors.

Coram: Justice Raja Vijayaraghavan V.

Case No.: WP(C) NO. 19808 OF 2021

Court Observation: “The Hon’ble Supreme Court has time and again observed that the beneficial provisions of the 1995 Act/ 2016 Act would remain on paper and the rights of the PwD (persons with disabilities) would be defeated by the sluggish and obstinate stand taken by the Appropriate Government and the establishments. Instead of being proactive to protect the interests of the disabled, a conscious effort is being taken to thwart their efforts to secure employment by taking an obstructive or lethargic stand.”

“In order to enable persons with disabilities to lead a life of equal dignity and worth, it is not enough to mandate that discrimination against them is impermissible. That is necessary, but not sufficient. We must equally ensure, as a society, that we provide them the additional support and facilities that are necessary for them to offset the impact of their disability.”
