New Delhi: The Delhi High Court has today directed the authorities to consider a PIL as a representation, filed seeking rules to be framed for testing, certification, and launching of products claiming that they sterilize objects, including PPE Kits, infected/ contaminated of COVID-19 virus.

A divisional bench of the Delhi High Court comprising Chief Justice D.N. Patel and Justice Prateek Jalan, while hearing the matter through video conferencing said that, “We direct the concerned authorities to treat the petition as a representation and decide the same in accordance with the law, rules, regulations and government policy applicable in such cases and after hearing all the concerned parties.

The Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed by Green Dream Foundation against the manufacturing and sale of products like “Corona Oven”. The bench has further directed the concerned authorities to decide expeditiously and as practicable as possible.
