KOLKATA: The Calcutta HC Wednesday held the Mamata Banerjee government’s “Duare (doorstep) ration scheme” a “nullity in the eyes of the law” as it ran contrary to National Food Security Act. The Bengal government is likely to appeal in Supreme Court against the HC order passed by a division bench of Justices Chitta Ranjan Dash and Aniruddha Roy. The division bench set aside a December 2021 single-bench order upholding the scheme.
The scheme had earlier earned accolades from the apex court, which urged other states to emulate Bengal’s system. Apart from Justice Moushumi Bhattacharya in December 2021, Justice Krishna Rao had upheld the validity of the scheme in July last year.
Hearing an appeal by petitioners Manowar Ali and Sekh Abdul Majed on behalf of ration dealers, the Calcutta HC said on Wednesday: “…we are constrained to hold that Duare Ration Scheme is ultra vires the National Food Security Act, 2013”. The bench held that the state had “transgressed the limit” of delegation by making fair price shop dealers distribute ration at beneficiaries’ doorsteps in the absence of such provisions in the 2013 Act.
