In a first-of-its-kind initiative, the District Legal Services Authority (DLSA) opened a crèche for the staff at the Mohali Judicial Complex today.

The crèche, which witnessed 17 admissions on the first day, was inaugurated by Justice Daya Chaudhary, a Senior Judge at the Punjab and Haryana High Court, in presence of another HC Judge Hari Pal Verma.
