On the other hand, the state government has also got relief in the High Court over this project. Some ration dealers approached the court seeking a stay on the Duare Ration pilot project as soon as the state government directed them to start work on the pilot project. The plaintiff ration dealers claimed, ‘The ration project at the doorstep of the state government is against the Central Ration Distribution Act. The project is both cost-effective. At the same time, most of the ration dealers do not have the amount of money and staff required to implement this plan. But on September 15, the application of the ration dealers was rejected in the court.
“Necessity is the main reason for the invention, an invisible virus has discovered a new way of survival,” the observation court said. An invisible virus has revolutionized people’s lives. Various organizations are delivering daily necessities to the doorsteps of the people. Private companies have played a leading role in this regard. Government or semi-government agencies are not far behind. The state government has launched a door-to-door ration scheme with a grand objective. The court does not think any law is being violated ‘, said Justice Amrit Sinha, dismissing the pleas of ration dealers.
