New Delhi, August 9
The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Centre to submit the action taken report within two weeks on the recommendations of court-appointed National Task Force (NTF) on allocation of oxygen to states and Union Territories amidst the Covid pandemic.
The top court said that since the NTF consists of senior doctors and experts from all over the country, it is imperative for the Centre to take steps to ensure that recommendations are duly implemented at the policy level to meet any exigencies in present and foreseeable future.
A bench of Justices DY Chandrachud and MR Shah posted the matter for further hearing after two weeks and listed it along with the suo motu matter on Covid preparedness.
The top court noted that the final NTF report had been submitted and an interim report of the sub-committee on evaluation of oxygen requirement of national capital had been filed.
The top court was hearing a plea filed by the Centre against the Delhi High Court order initiating contempt proceedings against central government officials for non-compliance of the direction to supply 700 MT of medical grade oxygen for Covid patients in the national capital. PTI
