The problem is many families do not divulge the detail of a disabled
member since they consider it an unsuitable thing to mention. This is
largely based on ignorance and lack of education which is largely the
case. That is why they are trying all kinds of subtle ways to get the
information accurately.

You said:
"Caste, religion etc. can't be identified without a certificate, but
disability can be identified by the very presence of the person.  So,
I don't know how and why we want to hide this aspect"

What if it is a hidden or invisible disability?  The presence of the
person would neither confirm or deny the presence of a disability.
