Source: Hindustan Times, Date: February , 2017

Hindustan Times, New Delhi, Feb 2017: Doctors at New Delhi’s Safdarjung Hospital may soon be operating and treating patients in the dark with the National Green Tribunal (NGT) threatening to cut off its water and power supply if it does not comply with biomedical waste disposal norms within 15 days. “It’s impossible to meet the deadline, such a project will take at least six months to a year,” said Dr AK Rai, medical superintendant of the hospital. Safdarjung is one of the busiest government hospitals in Delhi, with a daily footfall of 7,000-8,000 patients. It has the biggest burns ward and the highest number of deliveries in north India, delivering between 70 and 80 babies each day.
