About the Lecture:

The judgement of Vikash Kumar v. UPSC and others recognises and amplifies the right to reasonable accommodation and roots it in the constitution. It is reflective of the metamorphosis of the disability rights jurisprudence of India, which is why it is imperative to discuss its implications and the gaps that are yet to be filled.
