Supreme Court directs Centre to place plan to supply 700 MT oxygen per day to Delhi by tomorrow morn
The Supreme Court special bench led by Justice D.Y. Chandrachud on Thursday directed the Central Government to submit its plan to supply 700MT of oxygen to Delhi everyday by tomorrow 10.30am.
The court also dismissed the Delhi High Court’s notice on contempt proceedings against Central government officers, saying that putting officers behind bars for contempt will not get oxygen to the hospitals of Delhi.
The Delhi High Court on Tuesday had asked the Central government officials to remain present in court. It had issued a show-cause notice as to why contempt may not be initiated against them. The Centre moved the Supreme Court against the order of the High Court.
The Supreme Court also considered the Mumbai Model for Oxygen Supply/Stock. It directed the Delhi Govt Official and Central Govt Official to engage with the BMC Officials to augment the supply of oxygen for Delhi.
