Government Bus Stations In Uttar Pradesh Will Soon Have Brea
In India, there is an urgent need to make public spaces more breastfeeding-friendly through environment changes and awareness about mothers’ rights to breastfeed in public spaces. Public spaces need to be made more comfortable for mothers and the practice must be normalised.

In a bid to ensure the same, the Uttar Pradesh government has announced that it is installing cubicles at government-run bus stations for baby feeding.

According to Raj Shekhar, Managing Director of the Uttar Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (UPSRTC), these cubicles will help mothers, who often face embarrassment of feeding their newborns while travelling, reported news agency IANS.

The UPSRTC has released Rs 2.5 crore for constructing modular breastfeeding cubicles in the state-run bus stations. Of the 242 bus stations operational in the state, 23 will get the cubicles in the first phase and the remaining kiosks will be set up by November.

The cubicles are made of light-weight stainless steel and can be quickly assembled, installed and shifted to different locations without much effort.

Having a 40x40 mm dimension, the cubicles can be grouted with 8mm thick support plate.

The cubicles will have enough space to change diapers of infants and will also have LED lights and fans for comfort.
