India has a large population and also population of persons with disabilities. As per survey conducted by the National Sample Survey Organization in 2002 a total of 1.8% population of the country suffers from one or the other disability. The population with multiple disabilities in India estimated to be of 10.63% of the total population with disabilities. This is one of the most difficult group for which the country is providing education as many of them find it difficult to attend mainstream education on a regular basis. The present paper is an attempt to collect information on researches done in the area of multiple disability in India and discuss there implications for welfare and education of children with multiple disabilities. These researches are few and the country needs to carry out more researches in this area so that persons with multiple disabilities could also be provided equal opportunity as others and are benefited by appropriate education.
