Who will take care of child with disability after their parents die?

Usually after parents’ death, their blood relatives (brothers/sisters, aunts/uncles) take over as legal guardians of the children. If the parents’ brothers and sisters are not alive, or aren’t  in the condition to take care of the child, the child is  taken care of by the next closest relatives.

The National Trust Act, 1999 emphasises on Legal Guardianship for individuals suffering from  Intellectual Disabilities, Autism, Cerebral Palsy, and Multiple Disabilities, over the age of 18 and has the provision of appointing Legal guardians who can take care of the person with disability when their parents are no more.
