New Delhi: Differently-abled individuals will now be able to find the perfect match for themselves, thanks to a new mobile application that is making the phenomenon of
love more inclusive than ever before.

Similar to the existing dating application Tinder, 'Inclov' which started off as an offline matchmaking venture in 2014, gives individuals with special needs an opportunity
to find a partner who can be compassionate and thoughtful towards their condition.
A knee injury that left one of the co-founders of 'Inclov' Shankar Srinivasan under "house arrest" for over three months, made him realise the inaccessible nature of public platforms across the country.

"My co-founder Kalyani Khona came up with the idea in July 2014 and it started off as an offline matchmaking agency where profiles were matched manually."Both of us were passionate about matchmaking and we thought about which community requires it the most - and this seemed like the one," Srinivasan told PTI. Like any other application, an individual is expected to input basic details like 'Name', 'Image(s)', 'Age', preference
of gender along with professional and educational details.

They are also required to mention additionally the type of disorder or disability they have, to offer users a transparent and seamless experience while making choices. An individual is also expected to provide information about the 'Percentage of disability', 'Assistive devices', and 'level of independence'.

"You will be shown five curated, new profiles every day and you can send a chat request. Once the request is accepted, the two users can chat with each other on the app and at their discretion exchange personal information," says Srinivasan.
