Supreme Court slaps Rs 10 lakh On Spicejet For Offloading Disabled Flyer

The Supreme Court has directed budget airline Spicejet  to pay Rs 10 Lakh as damages to a flyer, suffering from cerebral palsy, who was forcibly offloaded in 2012, saying the manner in which she was deboarded depicts “total lack of sensitivity”.


The bench, in its 54-page judgement, further said that differently-abled persons are unable to lead a full life due to societal barriers and discrimination faced by them in employment, access to public spaces and transportation. There are hardly meaningful attempts to assimilate them in the mainstream of the nation’s life. The apathy towards their problems is so pervasive that even the number of disabled persons existing in the country is not well documented.


So let’s do:
1. Supreme Court slaps Rs 10 lakh On _______ For Offloading Disabled Flyer.
