SC directs govt to not adopt one-door policy in relief distribution
Aug 18, 2017-The Supreme Court on Friday issued an interim order directing the government to not implement its earlier decision to adopt one-door policy in relief distribution for flood victims.
Responding to a writ petition filed by advocate Sunil Ranjan Singh, a single bench of Justice Om Prakash Mishra issued the order this afternoon.
The apex court also directed the government to immediately distribute relief materials and provide treatment to the flood victims.
Home Minister Janardan Sharma during a meeting of the Central Natural Disaster Rescue Committee on August 13 had instructed government secretaries to ensure that the relief materials for the survivors of floods and landslides were distributed only though government channel.
