Better access in India in the offing

The Delhi (India) High Court is taking some steps toward improving access for people with disabilities to rail and air travel there. The court has ordered railways to provide wheelchairs for those who need them at the carrier's cost. The court also has directed airlines there to list their provisions for people with disabilities. I don't know Indian currency, but check out at the end of this article the extra charges levied by some airlines for travelers with disabilities. Let's hope eliminating that practice is the next target on the High Court's radar.
