The Supreme Court has objected to the transfer of State Disaster Response Funds to personal accounts by the Andhra Pradesh government and issued notice while restraining it to transfer funds. The Union Finance Ministry has also objected to the same.

Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati accepted notice on behalf of the Union of India.

A bench of Justices MR Shah and BV Nagarathna was hearing the case and the next date has been fixed on April 28.

Previously, the bench had expressed its concern over the fake certificates of Covid-19 deaths issued by the medical practitioners for ex-gratia, stating that this may prevent the real beneficiary from getting his due. The bench was hearing the application filed in the judgment passed by it in a plea moved by Gaurav Kumar Bansal, seeking ex-gratia payments to families of those who died due to Covid-19.
