Abstract: Differently abled students often tend to have limited education and employment opportunities. There are several reasons attributing to this situation. One, being limitations in public funding; secondly, common man having limited knowledge in government policies; and finally, much more is attributed to the attitudinal issues of normal population towards the differently abled. However, we always have ways to try and bring such communities at par with mainstream. This paper highlights the findings with respect to various policies and their implementation, pertaining to different developed and developing countries from published and available work. It is also attempted to present some long-term sustainable ideas as future scope of research to resolve some of the challenges rising from the reasons specified above. Sustainable inclusive education means having policies and frameworks, and releasing them via government orders, which is one side of the coin; reachability of the same to the common man. To make it further sustainable is the biggest challenge needed to be addressed.

Keywords: inclusive education; higher education; grants; differently abled students; sustainable inclusive education.
