HC pulls up DDA, MCDs over land for Mohalla clinics

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Monday pulled up the DDA and civic bodies over their failure to examine the feasibility of lands proposed for Mohalla Clinics in the city to provide adequate health facility to the people.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar also warned the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) of contempt action against its counsel for his inability to tell the court about the location of 245 sites proposed by the AAP government for Mohalla clinics.
"We had passed a specific direction on the last date of hearing to examine the feasibility of sorting out the difficulties with regard to the Mohalla Clinics on the proposed sites. It seems the authorities concerned are not proceeding in the matter," the bench observed.
The court further directed the Delhi government's Principal Secretary to convene a meeting with all bodies like the DDA and all MCDs to examine the feasibility of land identified for these clinics," the bench observed.
