Delhi HC seeks response to plea against illegal labs & diagnostic centres

IANS Sep 07, 2018

The Delhi High Court on Sepetmber 6 asked the AAP government to respond to a plea for action against illegal pathology labs and diagnostic centres in Delhi.





A bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V. Kameswar Rao listed the matter for September 17. Bijon Kumar Misra, who filed the public interest litigation, pleaded for appropriate steps by the government to ensure that the labs and diagnostic centres maintained quality as the patients' line of treatment depended solely on their reports.

The petitioner sought the urgent implementation of the Clinical Establishments (Registration and Regulation) Act of 2010 in the National Capital Territory of Delhi. The petitioner claimed that only 10 per cent of the labs and diagnostic centres operating in Delhi were accredited by the National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories, an autonomous body of the Quality Council of India.
