The Delhi High Court, emphasizing equality and inclusivity, stated that individuals recognized under the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (RPwD) Act, 2016, should be referred to as “differently abled” rather than “disabled” in W.P.(C) 75/2024. It highlighted that the RPWD Act aims to neutralize disabilities so that individuals can stand on equal footing. The Court’s decision underscores the importance of integrating differently abled individuals into mainstream society and ensuring equal opportunities for all.
