New Delhi, July 18: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday sought a response from the Ministry of Women and Child Development, the state government and civic authorities on plea seeking construction of baby feeding and child care rooms at public places. A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and C. Hari Shankar asked the Central government and other authorities to file an action taken report on the plea seeking guidelines for construction of baby feeding and child care centres at public places. The bench, which was hearing a plea filed by a 9-month-old Avyaan through his mother Neha Rastogi and advocate Animesh Rastogi seeking court’s intervention in providing adequate facilities to lactating mothers and infants in the country, listed the matter for August 28 for further hearing. The bench asked the government agencies why baby feeding rooms, provided all over the world, have not been constructed in India. (IANS)
