In compliance with the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with disabilities, India has accepted the terms and conditions of ratifying the convention and developed its national legislation i.e. Rights of Persons with Disability Act 2016. However, the present research argues that the picture in practice is quite different, for it lacks logic and poor implementation. To clarify logic, the act adopted the same definition of “persons with disabilities” as mentioned in the UNCRPD but defeats its purpose i.e. disability is an evolving concept by restricting and categorizing the disabilities to 21 specified disabilities for which a person can apply for disablement certificate. The research through its qualitative single case study method presents the critical analysis of the definition of disability under the RPWD Act 2016 and showcase the poor implementation of law focusing on the persons who are not able to take the benefit just because they do not fall under these categories, however suffering the same hardship as of disabled persons.
