Delhi HC sets aside Delhi governments doorstep ration delivery scheme

19/05/2022 at 9:15 PM

New Delhi, May 19: The Delhi High Court on Thursday set aside the Delhi government’s doorstep delivery of rations for the poor.

The bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Jasmeet Singh delivered the judgment hearing the plea filed by Delhi Sarkari Ration Dealers Sangh opposing the scheme.

On January 10, the bench had reserved its judgment after hearing the plea.

The Delhi government had earlier stated that the doorstep delivery scheme is aimed at preventing the leakages in the distribution of food grains.

It further stated that there was a complete misconception that fair-price shops would cease to exist after the implementation of the scheme.

The Centre had opposed the Delhi government’s doorstep ration delivery scheme citing that the State could mitigate the architecture of the National Food Security Act (NFSA) while implementing it.
It had earlier said the court should not allow any state government to interfere with the structure of NFSA and destroy its architecture and that FPS is an integral part of the Act.
