No, the Disabilities Act (1995) is not being implemented in this case. According to the Disabilities Act, it is mandatory for all the public buildings, primary health centers to provide ramps for the easy access to the people with disabilities. The aim of the Disabilities Act is the “full participation and equality of the people with disabilities”. By not providing ramps, the dignity of this person is violated. He is not being provided with the opportunity to be self-independent. It is also an attack on his self-confidence. It might affect his safety in the sense, if the people who are carrying him lost their balance, it will cause him some serious injury.
