Abstract: India is a developing country with an ever-increasing GDP but still education is not reaching the poorest of the poor people (CWD). For instance, a large number of people who reside in rural areas as well as Dalits are deprived of basic education. When this fact is compared to disability, the situation is no different. 75 % of the disabled population resides in rural areas. They are deprived of education due to the lack of infrastructure facilities like low availability of schools and inaccessibility (as often the schools are located far from their homes) , no availability of schools, and inaccessibility and often the schools are located far from homes.So when we talk about inclusive and integrated education, enough is not being done as many government policies are not reaching the children with disabilities. Policies like the Sarva Shiksha Abhiyaan (SSA) are aimed at educating all children but enough is still not being done. Education is a fundamental right as per the constitution and it is unfortunate that many are deprived this right.This study focuses on the educational schemes related to children with disabilities in Tuljapur, Maharashtra During the study on ―Educational Schemes for Children with Disability‖ in Tuljapur block of Osmanabad District, The Researcher was able to address certain facts that there is lack of awareness which leads to further issues like very low utilization of schemes, improper implementation and inaccessibility of available schemes for the target group. The Researcher concludes by saying that on the part of target group and their parents it is very necessary to be aware about various schemes made for them so that those can be implemented and their benefits can be taken hence unless and until awareness among the population will not take place the right to education cannot be enjoyed by the children with disability.For the study, a survey with a sample of 34 parents of children with disability was drawn through simple random sampling was conducted. Apart from this, government officials were also interviewed. Therefore the literature obtained through this research is about the awareness level of the schemes related to education of children with disability, the level of education among children with disability, the utilisation of the schemes and the role of the government in providing such schemes/dissemination of the information related to the schemes and making infrastructure available to kids in the form of schools.
