The High Court of Himachal Pradesh on 5 June 2015 asked the state government to establish separate homes for differently-abled, shelter less, destitute and mentality challenged people. The state government was asked to complete the work within a year.

The court also directed the Principal Secretary (Social Justice and Empowerment) to release adequate funds for the purpose within eight weeks. In order to ascertain that people in old age homes are provided with the basic amenities or not, the court also asked the Director Welfare to visit the old age homes.

It directed that if the amenities are not being provided then, the same should be made available to them within two weeks after visiting the homes.

A division bench comprising Justice Rajiv Sharma and Justice Tarlok Singh Chauhan passed these orders, taking cognizance of a letter written by Chairman, Umang Foundation, Ajai Srivastava, wherein he had raised questions on the pathetic living conditions provided to the inmates at the Old Age Home, Basantpur near Shimla.
