New Delhi, Feb 6 (UNI) The Delhi High Court today directed the Central and the state governments (NCT) to form grievance redressal committees in the hospitals, regarding the pathetic conditions of the government-run hospitals in the Capital.

A bench comprising Chief Justice M K Sharma and Justice Reva Khetrapal told the government that there should be a committee which would monitor the situation of the hospitals and register the complaints of the patients.

The committee could give its suggestions and recommendations regarding any changes and improvements in the government run hospitals if required.

The court disposed of the petition filed by a lawyer Varun Goswami who had alleged that the situation in the burns ward of Safdarjung hospital was pathetic and immediate steps should be taken to improve it.

Though the initial petition pertained only to the burns ward but the court had ordered to monitor the situation at general wards also and at other government hospitals.

Court had formed a Monitoring Committee comprising lawyers A S Chandok, Meera Bhatia, Rajiv Bansal, and Varun Goswami who visited the hospitals regularly and suggested some changes there.
