Why Accessibility Services?
Speaking about BananaIP’s Accessibility Law Services, Dr. Kalyan C. Kankanala said,
“Accessibility to information, technology, physical spaces, and transport to persons with disabilities is critical in enabling their full/equal participation in all walks of life. The Disability Act in India mandates accessibility and reasonable accommodations, and our primary objective is to enable, facilitate, and enforce its implementation through professional engagement and services.
Initially, our focus will be on digital and informational accessibility, and in the future, we will provide professional support in other areas as well. Through these services, we are hoping to contribute towards making services and facilities universally accessible to everyone.”
