We at Divyang Legal advice individuals as well as establishments on compliances under the laws relating to rights of persons with disabilities.
Divyang Legal is aware that at present, a lot of establishments are still trying to understand and ensure that they are fully compliant with the Rights of Persons With Disabilities (“RPWD”) Act, 2016. At Divyang Legal we conduct comprehensive and expansive compliance audits for your establishment and ensure you get the right legal assistance towards being fully compliant with the RPWD Act.
At present all establishments are legally bound to be fully compliant with the RPWD Act, 2016 and must implement in letter and spirit the provisions of the law. The RPWD Act and the rules framed thereunder additionally require all establishments to undertake certain compliance measures as well. The Act and the Rules also impose certain specific compliances which are required to be met by government establishments. Furthermore, establishments carry the risk of being penalised by appropriate authorities in case of noncompliance with the Act and Rules.
We at Divyang Legal undertake a comprehensive compliance audit based on a questionnaire specially designed by us for this purpose, which enables us to understand the commitment of an establishment to the laws relating to persons with disabilities. Upon making a thorough analysis from this audit process we further advice the establishments regarding the steps and improvements that may be required by them to make them fully compliant.
Additionally, Divyang Legal also provides industry/sector specific compliance audits. Certain establishments are required to not only be compliant with the statutory provisions provided under the RPWD Act and Rules but also certain guidelines that may have been issued by their respective sector specific committees and/or forums. An example of this would be – if you are an educational institution, you would also be recommended by Divyang Legal to follow specific guidelines prescribed by the University Grants Commission (UGC) or National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) specially for disabled students.
