This chapter looks at the United Nations Convention on Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) and its potential impact on the Persons with Disabilities (PWD) Act in India. It examines the two major aspects of the CRPD: the intermingling of positive and negative obligations and the introduction of the social model of disability. It suggests that the CRPD holds a big promise for the advancement of disability law in India and identifies the important concepts of the CRPD that ought to be incorporated into any amendment or revision of the PWD Act.

Keywords:   CRPD, PWD Act, India, social model, disability law
