1. Structured negotiation as a boost for disability rights.

Topic: GS2 – Polity – Judiciary – Functioning – Alternative dispute resolution mechanism

Crucial for UPSC, addressing disability rights through structured negotiation ensures inclusive governance, aligning with constitutional values and social welfare legislations.

Context:
  • The article explores the success of structured negotiation in resolving disability rights cases, particularly in the United States.
  • It emphasizes its potential application in India to address accessibility issues, highlighting its benefits for both service providers and persons with disabilities.

Introduction:

  • Structured negotiation is a collaborative, solution-driven dispute resolution technique gaining popularity as an alternative to litigation.

 Success Stories:

  • Effectively addressed issues like inaccessible ATMs, point-of-sale devices, pedestrian signals, and service provider websites.
  • Major companies (Walmart, CVS, Caremark) adopted accessible solutions, including prescription bottles for blind or low vision customers.
  • Achieved institutional reforms in creating more accessible voting machines and websites.

 Win-Win Situation:

  • Success lies in creating a win-win situation.
  • Defaulting service providers avoid costs and negative publicity associated with litigation.
  • Complainants seek barrier-free participation in the marketplace.
  • Methodology enhanced by the establishment of disabled-friendly legal precedents.

India’s Challenge:

  • Red tape and increasing court delays in India dissuade parties from traditional dispute resolution methods.
  • Rights of Persons with Disabilities Act, 2016, allows reporting non-compliance to the Chief Commissioner for Persons with Disabilities (CCPD).
  • Impact on repairing accessibility barriers uncertain.

Potential of Structured Negotiation in India:

  • Valuable tool in India where traditional legal routes face challenges.
  • Recent case of PayTM highlights the need for real-time vigilance in making digital services accessible.
  • Provides a direct avenue for Persons with Disabilities to address concerns and monitor implementations.

Priority is Key:

  • Success in alternative dispute resolution depends on service providers prioritizing the struggles of persons with disabilities.
  • Until providers recognize benefits of serving this market, achieving amicable settlements outside courts remains challenging.
  • Businesses that prioritize disabled users’ needs and embrace structured negotiation can tap into significant buying capacity of persons with disabilities.

Conclusion:

  • Time has come for India to embrace structured negotiation extensively.
  • Businesses that fail to prioritize needs of disabled users risk losing out on both legal compliance and substantial purchasing power of persons with disabilities.
  • Openness to structured negotiation is a powerful step toward inclusivity and accessibility.
