The Manipur High Court has closed two Public Interest Litigation (PILs) related to the National Food Security Act, 2013.

One PIL has prayed for a direction to the authorities to ensure proper implementation of the Pradhan Manthri Garib Kalyan Anna Yojna (PMGKAY) Scheme under the NFSA, through Fair Price Shops in Manipur.

Another PIL has prayed for a direction to the authorities to appoint Nodal Officers under Section 14 of the National Food Security Act, 2013, and to designate appropriate and independent officials as District Grievance Officers in lieu of designating Additional Deputy Commissioners as the District Grievance Redressal Officers.

A further direction was sought by them to establish an independent full-fledged State Food Commission under Section 16 of NFSA.

M. Rakesh, Counsel for the petitioners in both these petitions filed in public interest, stated that the cause no longer survives for consideration on merits as adequate measures have been taken by the state authorities to constitute a State Food Commission for the purpose of redressing all the issues that arise in the context of the National Food Security Act, 2013, and the scheme framed thereunder.

Recording the said statement, the Division Bench of Chief Justice Sanjay Kumar and Justice M.V. Muralidaran closed the PILs.
