Government of India's Accessible India Campaign

In recognition for its ongoing work on highlighting universal accessibility for inclusion, CBM India has been empaneled as one of the domain experts and resource in accessibility for the Government of India’s Accessible India Campaign.

CBM India is one of the 18 organisations and institutions enlisted as ‘Access Auditors under Accessible India Campaign’ through a notification issued on the website of the Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Government of India.

The ambitious Sugamya Bharat Abhiyan (Accessible India Campaign), unveiled on the World Disability Day, December 3rd 2015, is a flagship initiative to create awareness and implementation of the principle of universal accessibility enshrined in existing national laws and schemes. Department of Empowerment of Persons with Disabilities (DEPwD), Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, has formulated the Accessible India Campaign (Sugamya Bharat Abhiyan), as a nation-wide campaign for achieving universal accessibility for people with disabilities.  

The campaign targets three verticals for achieving universal accessibility namely the built up environment, transportation eco-system and information & communication eco-system. 

The list has a mix of disability organisations, many of them are CBM India partners, and academic institutions. The empanelment is for a year and involves the listed organisations actively participating in auditing accessibility at national and state levels.

CBM India promotes universal accessibility as a crosscutting principle, through its programmes and advocacy with a range of stakeholders in all developmental discussions that impact the lives of people with disabilities.
