Among the disabled population 56 percent (1.5 Crore) are males and 44 percent (1.18 Crore) are females. Majority 69 percent (1.86 Crore) of disabled population belong to rural areas and 31 percent (0.81 Crore) is from urban background.

The focus of the current study is to identify the barriers faced by the students with a certain type of disability and the potential of ICT in overcoming them thereby facilitating education for people with special needs.
