| Friday | 7th December, 2018
The Delhi Food and Civil Supplies Department is moving the Supreme Court, challenging the AAP government’s decision to suspend e-POS or biometric authentication in the city’s Public Distribution System (PDS) network.
Since then, Singh has written to Delhi Food Minister Imran Hussain thrice, requesting him to reinstate e-POS.
According to sources, the food department has written to the law department seeking clearance and names of counsel to be engaged for this purpose.
The official added that the Supreme Court, in August 2017, had observed that e-POS-linked biometric authentication helped bring down corruption in PDS.
The allocations of wheat, rice and sugar for December are 2.75 lakh quintals, 71,360 quintals and 636 quintals respectively.
