Supreme Court asks Centre to submit action plan to supply 700 MT oxygen to Delhi


The Supreme Court (SC) on Wednesday asked the Centre to inform it by Thursday morning as to how it is going to comply with its April 30 order that asked union the government to ensure 700 MT of medical oxygen for Delhi. The apex court stayed the contempt notice issued by the Delhi High Court on Tuesday against the central government officers for failing to comply with its directive to ensure that 700 mt of oxygen was supplied to hospitals in Delhi which are reeling under a severe shortage.

“We direct that by 10.30 am tomorrow (Thursday), the Centre shall place a comprehensive plan in the form of a chart, indicating the manner in which the direction for allocation of 700 metric tonnes shall be complied with. Sources of supply, position of transport and other logistical requirements are necessary,” a Special Bench comprising justices D Y Chandrachud and M R Shah told Solicitor General Tushar Mehta.
