He added that such deaths occur due to limited resources.
The ministry had come under criticism after 32,002 infant deaths were reported from the state between October 2016 and October 2017.
Saraf further said they were constantly improving on developing infrastructure for childcare.
Responding on primary health centres (PHCs), he said they were giving good results currently.
Under the Adarsh PHC Yojna, 295 PHCs became operational in 2016 and, in July 2017, 286 more PHCs were converted to Adarsh PHCs.
