 Supreme Court Directs Centre and State Governments to Provide Basic Infrastructure in Schools
The Supreme Court on Wednesday directed the Centre and state Governments to provide basic infrastructure, including drinking water and toilets, in all schools within six months.

A bench headed by Justice K. S. Radhakrishnan fixed the time limit, and asked the governments to take steps to provide the basic facilities in schools across the country.

The bench said that all its previous directions pertaining to providing infrastructure should be implemented within the time frame fixed by it.

The court passed the order on a PIL seeking its direction to Centre and state governments to provide basic facilities of drinking water and toilets in schools.
