Durga Prasad Sharma, better known as D. P. Sharma (born 1 May 1969), is an Indian computer scientist and disability rights activist.

Early life and career

Son of a small farmer Ninua Ram Sharma, Durga Prasad Sharma was born in Samona village of Rajakhera Tehsil in Rajasthan, India. He was the youngest brother of the second number among 5 brothers and 3 sisters. His left arm and right leg are affected by post-polio syndrome.[1] After completing his primary level education, he had to walk 18 kilometers daily from his village Samona to attend the school in Rajakhera. Later he completed his degree-level education (BSc) from Government College Dholpur, Master of Computer Application (MCA), Master of Technology (M.Tech.) in Information Technology, as well as Ph.D. (Intranetwares) from University of Rajasthan, India.[2]

In 1994, Sharma joined a national advocacy campaign for the new disabled welfare and rehabilitation legislation in India which resulted in a new law passed by Indian Parliament, "Equal Opportunity, Protection of Rights and Full Participation Act 1995".[2]

In 2000, Sharma become Assistant Professor of Computer Science & Informatics and later promoted as Associate Professor and a Full Professor.[3]

Sharma has also been invited by the University of the People, USA. He is an expatriate research adviser at the University of the People (USA), Paris-Sud University (France), the Nuremberg Institute of Technology Georg Simon Ohm (Germany), and Rajasthan Technical University, Kota, India.[4] He has been serving a honorary adviser to an international educational programme run by Vrije Universiteit Brussel.[5][6]


In 2005, he developed a job search engine for people with disabilities[citation needed] which was later adopted by the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment, Government of India. It was designed to help the disabled people in search of jobs based on their suitability of working environment and physical limitations. The search engine was featured as a cover story in the SMB edition of PCQuest in March 2008.[2]

In 2017, Sharma was nominated as National Brand Ambassador (Academicians and Youth) by the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, to the nation-wide campaign Swachh Bharat Mission (Clean India Drive) .[7][8][9][10]

As of 2020, on the basis of Sharma's recommendation, the Government of Rajasthan started a process of establishing a Technical University in Jaipur, Rajasthan to provide technology-enabled training, education, and rehabilitation to people with disabilities.[2]

Sharma authored 22 books, edited/reviewed several academic articles[2] and contributed editorials on labour and disability issues for Rajasthan Patrika.[citation needed] He is also a member of editorial boards of several international journals.[citation needed]

Sharma advocates for end-to-end transformations in the Indian education system. His model of 360-degree transformation[further explanation needed] with close convergence of traditional Indian education and modern education models is notable.[11][12]
