DDWS has prepared draft Guidelines to provide inputs to the Harmonized Guidelines and Space Standards for Barrier Free Built Environment for Persons with Disabilities and Elderly Persons.
This draft document suggests information for designing an accessible and inclusive piped water supply for persons with disabilities and for other population groups with access challenges, including people with temporary access challenges such as pregnant women or mothers with young children or individuals who are suffering from short term physical ailments, since they too face similar barriers while accessing drinking water facilities.
Comments and suggestions on the draft accessibility standards are invited from the citizens. The comments may be sent by the citizens through email at
