This brief video dramatization demonstrates the process for filing Section 36 applications for compensation for violations of rights recognized under the Persons with Disabilities Rights and Protection Act, 2013. You can use it to provide powerful visual instructions of how the Section 36 application process created by the Act is intended to operate. In reality, the process that applicants experience may differ widely, depending on how sensitized, proactive, and aware district committee members may be about the Act and the functions and powers of these committees. So, this can be a useful tool to demonstrate to training and awareness-raising participants how the Section 36 application process was intended to function. You can use this video to create your own role plays and hypothetical situations in order to help training and awareness-raising participants not only understand the process but also practice their advocacy skills at different stages of the process.
