This office functions INDEPENDENTLY to safeguard the Rights of Persons with Disabilities in terms of NON-DISCRIMINATION and ensuring EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES and FULL PARTICIPATION in the society.

Initially, the office of CCPD started its functions from Shastri Bhawan and later on shifted to various locations in the rented spaces viz. Pandit Deendayal Upadhyaya National Institute for Persons with Physical Disabilities, Near ITO, New Delhi; Sector-39 at Noida and later on shifted to Sarojini House at Bhagwas Dass Road, New Delhi.However, this office hasalways been running with shortage of space to accommodate its staff & activities comfortably.

Now after a long wait, this office has got a suitable location with sufficient space at NISD Building, 5th Floor, Plot No G-2, Sector 10, Dwarka, New Delhi-75. The Office space is ready with all latest facilities, especially fully Divyangjan friendly.
