  1. Education plays a pivotal role in socio-economic empowerment of Persons with  Disabilities.  Recognizing  its  crucial  role,  the  Directive  Principles of State Policy in the Constitution of India and the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016 have underlined the role of the State in realization of the Right to Education for Persons with Disabilities. Article 41 of Part IV (Directive Principles of State  Policy)  of  the  Constitution  provides  that  the  State  shall make effective provisions for securing the right to work, to education  and  to public  assistance  in  cases  of  unemployment,  old  age,  sickness   and disablement, and in other cases of undeserved want.
  1. Article 46 of Part IV (Directive Principles of State Policy) of the Constitution enjoins upon the State to promote the educational and economic interests of the weaker sections of the people.

    1. Section 31 (I) of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016 (RPwD) states that “Notwithstanding anything contained  in  the  Rights  of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009, every  child  with benchmark disability between the age of six to  eighteen  years  shall  have  the right to free education in a neighborhood school, or in a special school, of his choice”.
    1. Further, Section 32 (2) of the RPwD Act states that the appropriate Government and local authorities shall ensure that every child with benchmark disability has access to free education in an appropriate environment  till  he attains the age of eighteen years.
