New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has directed Member Secretary, Delhi Legal Service Authority, to submit a status report on whether there is any need to continue with the hunger relief camps, providing dry ration to the non-PDS beneficiaries as also providing cooked food to those who are using night shelters provided by the DUSIB.

A divisional bench of the Delhi HC, comprising Justices Hima Kohli and Subramonium Prasad, while hearing the matter through video conferencing, noted: “We deem it appropriate to direct the Member Secretary, Delhi Legal Service Authority (DLSA) to examine the pleadings in the application and conduct an independent recce before filing a Status report, keeping in mind the current situation.”

The application has been filed by an NGO, Delhi Rozi-Roti Adhikar Abhiyan, seeking directions to resume the scheme of providing dry ration under the Mukhya Mantri Corona Sahayta Yojna or any other Scheme, to continue accepting E-coupon applications, to continue operating kiosks/helpdesks for facilitating the applicants for receiving the benefit of dry ration and to ensure the resumption of hunger relief centers for providing hot cooked meals.

As the bench was not inclined towards entertaining the application, Senior Advocate Sanjay Parikh, appearing for the petitioners, submitted that in the common rejoinder filed in response to the two affidavits filed by the Delhi Government, it has been specifically stated that there is still a requirement for the provision of free cooked meals to hunger relief centers, for providing ration to non-PDS beneficiaries and for providing cooked food to those who are staying at night shelters.
