Most women advocates are forced to abandon their legal career after they become mothers mainly because they do not get help to take care of their children.

The Supreme Court of India has finally disposed off a writ petition filed by Advocate-on-Record Anindita Pujari challenging the constitutionality of circular dated June 28, 2015, issued by the apex court to announce the establishment of crèche facility in the court premises.   

The grievance of the petitioner arose from the impugned circular restricting the use of the daycare facility to the children between the ages of 6 months and 2 years. It was the contented that such a condition is arbitrary and violative of Articles 14, 19(1) (g) and 21 of the Constitution. The other averments of the petition threw light on the lack of any provision for nutritious meals for the children, capping the maximum number of children that may be admitted in the creche to 10 children and excessive charges of Rs. 5,000 per month imposed for availing the crèche facility were sought to be decreased and adjusted from the Supreme Court Bar Association Fund.
