Mental disorder is not physical disability: Bombay HC turns down student's plea to get IIT-B degree 20.4.2018 DNA: Top News
A learning disability or a mental disorder cannot be termed a physical disability, the Bombay High Court said while refusing to direct the IIT Bombay to give a formal degree to a girl student suffering from dyscalculia, although she has completed a master's course. Dyscalculia is severe difficulty in making arithmetical calculations as a result of a brain disorder. A division bench of justices M S Sanklecha and A K Menon earlier this week rejected the petition filed by the student in 2012. In her petition, the student had claimed that she was suffering from dyscalculia, which is a learning disability, and falls under the category of physical disability. However, the IIT Bombay had refused to grant her admission to the Master of Design program on the ground that she had not specified in her application form that she was suffering from any physical disability. It had said that a learning disability was not a physical disability. When the petition was filed, the court had asked the IIT to admit the girl as ...
