As per report, as many as 70 million people in India are disabled. However, many of these people are working. They are provided job opportunities by the government and are even given tax redemptions depending on the severity of the condition.  It is important that such people are given equal opportunities at education and jobs as any other normal person would be given. This not only encourages other disabled people to come forward and take up education and work but also does not allow depression and destitution to capture their minds. Through encouragement and motivation, we all can help these people. Details of the income tax redemption can be found in a report published by the Nina Foundation. The report can be found on www.ninafoundation.org . Does anyone have some more information on this?

It is stated that a person can claim deduction from taxable income based on his physical disability and amount of deduction is dependent on percentage of disability
Yes!! I came across couple of informative sites which tell a lot about Income tax exemption for the physically disabled people.
