SC unhappy over non-compliance of its order on making buildings disabled-friendly, says courts are not running governments

The Supreme Court today criticised the Centre over non-compliance of its earlier verdict of making public institutions disabled-friendly and said the government had to follow the law and order.

A bench of Justices AK Sikri and Ashok Bhushan asked the Centre to file a fresh affidavit within four weeks giving details of the steps taken so far and the timeline for completing the work as given in its December last year's verdict.

 
The apex court, in a fresh order seeking to make judiciary disabled-friendly, especially for visually impaired people, issued notices to the registrar generals of all high courts and the secretary general of the Supreme Court.

The top court had on 15th December 2017 passed a slew of directions, including that all government buildings providing any services to the public be made fully accessible to differently-abled persons by June 2019 as per provision of the Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016.
