New Delhi, July 27 (IANS) The Supreme Court Tuesday sought the central government’s response to its suggestion to abolish the above poverty line segment and expand the ambit of the below poverty line category under the public distribution system.
A bench of Justices Dalveer Bhandari and Deepak Verma asked the union food secretary to file his reply to this and scores of other suggestions, including steps to plug pilferage and rotting of foodgrain.

The court said in a situation where people are admittedly starving, the rotting of foodgrain is a crime.
