Coronavirus in India: The Delhi High Court has asked the Delhi government to simplify the procedure for accessing ration by those poor or needy people who have Aadhaar cards and voter IDs but do not possess ration cards.
A Division Bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice C Hari Shankar said: “If there is any need for change in the policy decision, the same shall be simplified by the respondents looking to the need of the people at large. We also direct the respondents that if any change in the policy decision is carried out for simplification in the procedure to get the ration, the same will be notified and informed to all the fair price shop owners.”
The court also asked the competent authorities to mention it in their advisory or notes or communication to all the fair price shop owners in the city of Delhi that the ration is made available to the people without ration cards but in possession of their voter ID or Aadhaar card so that the fair price shop owners can implement it and the benefit of the simplified procedure of the authorities can reach the public at large who are in need of ration.
