The Delhi High Court has today directed the Delhi government to consider the PIL filed seeking direction for the welfare of a person with a disability during the pandemic as a representation and take decisions on it as expeditiously as possible.

A divisional bench comprising Chief Justice D.N. Patal and Justice Prateek Jalan while hearing the matter through video conferencing noted that “everything doesn’t depend upon the government, it is your duty also to help them make more registration.”

The Public Interest Litigation has been filed by Shubham Singh through his Advocate Mr. Kabir S. Ghosh, seeking the release of allowance under the PwD Pension scheme, provision for doorstep consultations for persons with disabilities, ensuring access to essentials such as food, water, medicine to the extent possible at the place of residence or where they have been quarantined.

The petition stated that “even after the lockdowns were relaxed post 31.05.2020, the plight and misery of the persons with disabilities continued and no dedicated policy or program was made or introduced to look into the concerns of persons with disabilities, rightly termed “an invisible minority.”

The petitioner however at this stage submitted that “…they want the PIL to be considered as representation before the authorities and don’t want to press a lot during the pandemic.”

The bench while disposing of the petition directed the Delhi government to consider this petition as a representation and act as expeditiously as possible in accordance with the law.
