In an article written in The Indian Express on the 31st of July of 2016, Javed Abidi sheds light on some of the issues faced by disabled people in the realm of accessing financial assistance. The census of 2011 puts the number of people living with disabilities at 2.68 crores, which is 2.21 % of the Indian population. It is a matter of great importance that such a large number of people are able to access financial institutions and services without needless encumbrances. ?Skill development is another key factor in making them more self reliant and economically contributing members of Society.
These are Mr. Javed Abidi?s view on the matter.
