New Delhi: In an attempt at addressing the critical condition of the rehabilitating rescued child laborers of the city, the Delhi High Court has asked the state government to undertake effective actions in order to achieve the same.

A bench of justices Kailash Gambhir and PS Teji were alarmed at the fact that Delhi, despite having the required infrastructure, fails in providing adequate amenities to the rehabilitated child laborers.

Further, it also directed Delhi’s Chief Secretary to improve upon the working of Child Welfare Committees. The bench has also asked the secretary to look into the workings of the CWCs and juvenile homes.

The aforesaid order came in the wake of the lackadaisical attitude put up by both the central and state government in rescuing the two children in the capital.

It was after looking into the plea put up by Seema Roy who has been running pillar to post in order to get the custody of  her 12 year old son.

The bench realized that the Delhi police, CWC and the department of labour have failed in solving the precarious condition of child labourers.

“The chief secretary of Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi is directed to convene an urgent meeting of all the stakeholders to have a complete review of the functioning of all the bodies who are involved in the process and to ascertain the exact reasons as to why they have failed to carry out the said directives,” the bench said, as quoted in a leading daily.

As a mark of respect to the Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th Birth Anniversary, the Full Court of Rajasthan High Court has unanimously resolved to ban single-use plastic and thermocol products in the court’s premises.

In a circular, the Rajasthan High Court said the state government had imposed a ban on the use of plastic carry bags across the State in 2010 but this has not sufficiently worked on the ground.

The Central Government has recently declared to ban the single-use plastic across the nation from October 2, but without public awareness and commitment, this step may also result in futility, the circular stated.

“As a mark of respect to the father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi on his 150th Birth anniversary and in the interest of the institution and public at large, the Full Court has unanimously resolved not to use the banned single-use plastic/thermocol in any manner in the premises of the Rajasthan High Court and High Court guest house both at Jodhpur and Jaipur, as also in the premises of all the subordinate courts, canteens/restaurants in the premises of all the Courts of the State and also during official functions, conferences and any other occasions,” said the Rajasthan High Court in a notification.

This means that the ban will extend to all courts in the state, High Court Guest House at Jaipur and Jodhpur, canteens and restaurants operating inside the premises of Courts as well as official functions, conferences and any other occasion.
