High Court issues notice to Centre on plea to curb population

The Delhi High Court on Friday directed the Delhi government to examine the model rules suggested by the central government on distribution of food by fair price shops and take steps under the provisions of the National Food Security Act within two weeks.

Following a PIL filed by the Delhi Rozi Roti Adhikar Abhiyan (DRRAA) regarding the implementation of the NFSA in Delhi, bench of Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice V K Raoproduced the direction stating that, “it was constrained to note that despite the order on 1 September last year, the AAP government has not complied with the directions and the provisions of National Food Security Act (NFSA) have not been put into place.”

The bench granted two weeks to the Delhi government to bring on record the timeline and schedule by when its order and statutory provisions of the NFSA will be complied with in too.

The bench further said that Delhi does not have a functioning State Food Commission or a mechanism for social audit, which is required to be undertaken periodically.

It had also asked the state government to examine the provisions of the NFSA and put in place the internal grievance redressal mechanism and District Grievance Redressal Officer.

The bench posted the matter for further hearing on September 13.
