Appointment of guardians for persons in a coma: Allahabad HC lays down guidelines, asks Centre to consider framing law
The Court clarified that the guidelines laid down by it are temporary in nature and are meant to apply only till an appropriate enactment is passed on the issue.
The Allahabad High Court on Monday issued certain guidelines for the appointment of guardians for persons who are in a comatose state, and recommended that the Centre introduce a law on this issue (Uma Mittal ad ors. v. Union of India and ors).
