A committee led by Justice S Ravindra Bhat formedby CJI DY Chandrachud to conduct an accessibilityevaluation of Supreme Court facilities.

Days after Chief Justice of India (CJI), DY Chandrachud, stood up in the middle of a hearing to visit a
disabled plaintiff outside the courtroom, the CJI has now established a committee to investigate the
challenges experienced by the disabled in entering the Supreme Court buildings.
Justice S. Ravindra Bhat will serve as the chair of the “Supreme Court Committee on Accessibility,” which
has been entrusted with performing a thorough accessibility assessment of the Supreme Court grounds.
The audit will cover both technological and physical accessibility, according to a press statement from
the supreme court on Sunday. The Committee has also been given the duty of creating and
disseminating a questionnaire for use by people with disabilities who visit the Supreme Court’s offices to
determine the kind and severity of the issues they encounter.
