Supreme Court directs govt to allocate more foodgrain for poor

New Delhi , Sat, 14 May 2011 ANI

New Delhi, May 14 (ANI): The Supreme Court on Saturday directed the Centre to allocate additional five million tonnes of foodgrain to the 150 poorest districts of the country.


A Bench of Justices Dalveer Bhandari and Justice Deepak Verma asked the Centre to distribute the additional foodgrain during the summer to the poor and vulnerable sections of the society under the guidance of the committee led by Justice DP Wadhwa.


The bench said the committee would identify the vulnerable sections in consultation with the Centre and would recommend allocation of foodgrain to the targeted beneficiaries.


The bench had also repeated its earlier stance that if godowns were overflowing or foodgrains are being destroyed on account of other reasons there was no reason why government should not distribute them at subsidised rates to the BPL and Antodaya Anna Yojana (AAY) families. (ANI)
