The CPWD's Harmonised Guidelines and Space Standards for Barrier­Free Built Environment for Persons with Disabilities and Elderly People, which were announced in February 2016 under the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, have been updated by the new guidelines (MoHUA). It is stated in the standards that "before, the guidelines were centered on building a barrier-free environment, but now we're focusing on universal accessibility," as opposed to "previously." In addition to making public buildings and transportation fully accessible for wheelchair users, other users who may encounter temporary issues have also been considered. Women wearing saris, for example, and parents pulling a child's pram while carrying groceries or other bags.
