Following a writ petition, the High Court on October 27, 2019 issued a rule upon the government to explain in four weeks as to why they should not be directed to take necessary steps to set up breastfeeding corners and baby care corners at all work places, shopping malls, airports, bus stops and railway stations across the country.

It is absolutely true that the mothers feel very uneasy to feed their children at the workplaces and where there is no specific breast feeding and baby care corners. As per the HC rule, the authorities concern of the government should pay heed to establish breast feeding corners and baby care corners at required places.
