The Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (PNDT) committee in Delhi has been inactive for the past six months, causing delays in procurement of new machines and centers in government and private facilities. The proposal for reconstitution of the committee is pending approval from the chief secretary of Delhi and the lieutenant governor. The absence of the committee has affected the operations of diagnostic centers in the city. This has led to longer waiting times for basic radiology tests in government hospitals, causing inconvenience to poor patients.
