Eliminating discrimination against persons affected by leprosy

The Law Commission of India's 256th Report on Eliminating Discrimination Against Persons Affected by Leprosy has been released. 

The Report provides the framework for a model law that seeks to address the issue of such discrimination, by imposing obligations on both public and private establishments and through the amendment and/or repeal of archaic provisions under applicable legislations.

Vidhi fellows Yashaswini Mittal and Arghya Sengupta assisted the Law Commission in drafting this report.
