PWDs in India is more than merely a group of oppressed people who are also essential assets for innovation and sustainability. This paper examines how business and society can benefit from PwD perspectives, accessibility knowledge, flexibility, and market opportunities. Another issue that is discussed in this paper involves the challenges and barriers to participation in innovation for people with disabilities like attitudinal barriers, accessibility, and skills development. In conclusion, the paper offers some perspectives and suggestions that might be useful for firms and policymakers wishing to exploit this under-tapped resource.
