A new state law aims to ensure the safety of toilets and other facilities used in public schools

NEW DELHI: The Delhi High Court on Tuesday upheld a High Court order to make toilets and showers in public school toilets accessible to women and girls.

The Delhi High Courts Bench directed the Central government to implement the order of the Delhi Board of Secondary Education, a body of schools set up in 1999 by the Union government to provide facilities to girls in public education.

The bench directed the central government to appoint a committee to study the feasibility of implementing the Delhi High School’s order in the first phase of the new school year, beginning in September 2019.

The committee would report by February 2019.
