 Homeless People Must be Urgently Accommodated

It has emerged that the mortality rate amongst homeless people is unacceptably high. This has prompted calls for urgent shelters for the homeless.

These views were expressed by Harsh Mander, special commissioner to the Supreme Court at a three-day national seminar on Perspectives of Mental Illness in India, organized by The Banyan Academy of leadership in Mental Health.

"On studying the plight of homeless people in New Delhi, we found that they had to pay for every amenity that those with homes take for granted: food, bathing, using the toilets, they had to even borrow blankets for a fee in winter," Mr Mander, who is also the member of the National Advisory Committee said.

The need is pretty urgent as many homeless people prefer to starve rather than beg.
