Herewith I have annexed a copy of the recent Order dt. 11.03.2014 passed by the Patna High Court in the CHARM PIL filed on the issue of of MMR. The present order reads as---
"A supplementary affidavit filed today by the Secretary, Health Services-cum-Executive Director, State Health Society, Bihar dose not satisfy us when it only reveals figures with regard to accounts. We are more concerned with the actual state of affairs in each of the Health centres in the 38 Districts. We are informed that there are 9 Primary Health centres in the District of Munger. The District Judge, Munger, who is also the Chairman of the District Legal Services Authority shall inspect them himself and/or have it inspected through the Secretary, DLSA. A report shall be submitted to the Court with regard to the physical status of each one of them, if necessary with photographs, and the nature of facilities available apart from any other aspect that the District Judge may consider relevant for our purpose in this public interest litigation. A copy of this order shall be sent to the District Judge."
The matter shall be taken next on 12.05.2014.
