Form vigilance panels on PDS, apex court tells centreAugust 30th, 2012 - 8:15 pm ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Aug 30 (IANS) The Supreme Court Thursday asked the government to spell out the criteria on the composition of vigilance panels to monitor the public distribution system (PDS) instead of compelling the court to pass orders.
“Why don’t you provide for vigilance committees which in your wisdom is most effective, instead of the Supreme Court issuing directions,” observed the apex court bench of Justice T.S. Thakur and Justice Fakkir Mohamed Ibrahim Kalifulla.
“You can’t so easily wash your hands off your responsibility,” said Justice Thakur during a hearing on a public interest litigation by rights group People’s Union for Civil Liberties on the working of the PDS.
