The civic agencies informed the court on Wednesday that there are 3,712 public toilets for men and only 269 for women in the national capital. The numbers left the Delhi High Court unhappy as the civic agency filed its report on 10 of 12 zones,following a PIL alleging that adequate number of toilets for women were not there and the existing ones were not being maintained properly by civic authorities. The court also summoned Member Secretary of the Central Pollution Control Board (CPCB) after it failed to file a report on the condition of toilets for women. A division bench of justices Sanjay Kishan Kaul and Sanjeev Sachdeva sought the personal presence of the officer on August 6. The bench asked NDMC and Delhi Cantonment Board to file their status report by next date of hearing.
