Report sought on Metro toilets

New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has sought a detailed report from the city government and Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) mentioning the number of stations having public toilets on a PIL that sought direction to the government to provide basic amenities in metro stations here.

A Division Bench of Chief Justice M K Sharma and Justice Sanjeev Khanna also asked the petitioner to personally visit the stations and file a separate report by July 18.

DMRC's counsel told the court that out of 58 total metro stations, 48 have separate toilets for men and women. Ten stations lack toilets due to some repairs being undertaken or because construction of toilets was yet to be complete. -- PTI
