Hello Ajay,

As per WCAG 2.0, there would be no compliance issue if some part of the
website is not functional when Javascript is disabled. However, point to
remember from compliance perspective, it is required that the Javascript
used on the website is Accessible.

Thanks & Regards,

I read WebAim article and few more interesting thoughts
about this topic over the web, but could not find a straight answer as yes
no. All the discussions were more of a debate. I understand that the topic
debatable and really it depends on how we perceive it (am I wrong?). But
can anyone tell, if some part of site is non-functional when JavaScript is
disabled will make a compliance issue as per WCAG 2.0? Provided, we've tried
our best not use JavaScript wherever possible.
