Certification of Disability

Even though disability is a very personal identity, the limited resources available in the form of entitlements has forced most Governments to evolve a procedure of certification to ensure that only the genuinely needy avail of these. In India, the Rules framed under the Disability Law provides for the certification procedure. This Section explains the procedures for certification in the context of the NCT of Delhi, and also provides for the most up to date authorities who are empowered to certify impairments for the purpose of the Act. Forms and other information specific to certification is also provided. The grievance redressal mechanisms as well as the contact details of authorities are also provided.
