Let me put it this way. Would you be ok if your religion or you caste were
on the UID? What if you are a minority community living in a state like
Gujarat and riots like the Godhra riots happened? Would you want to be
easily identified based on your religion? My concern with disability being
one of the parameters is something similar. I am sure this comes across as
me being paranoid but I think that having disability as one of the
parameters could lead to abuse of the information to the detriment of
persons with disabilities.

Vamshi, what you want is a multipurpose certificate of disability which you
can use, at your option, I repeat, at your option to avail of benefits.

I confess that I have not done much research into this area so please
correct me if I am wrong.

Cheers,

Rahul
