Ideal Sectors consider the needs of minorities. Children, the elderly, and handicapped people are among the most vulnerable urban groups. Youth, women, and the poor represent the future of the Indian population. These are the segments of society that usually do not find it easy to assert their basic needs. In this context the requirements of universal design become IDEANā€˜s benchmarks in conception, planning, management and operation. Neighbourhoods that work for weaker groups such as children, handicapped people, the elderly, and other minorities feature the best quality of life for all and enhance social capital.
