The Allahabad High Court sought an update from the Union Ministry of Women & Child Development regarding their policy for providing nutritional food to the children and nursing and lactating mothers amid the Covid crisis, in terms of the Supreme Court order. A Division Bench comprised of Justices Pankaj Kumar Jaiswal and Karunesh Singh Pawar has asked the Government to file a written report regarding the policy in pursuance of the order passed by the Apex Court in In Re : Regarding Closure Of Mid-Day Meal Scheme. On March 18, 2020, a three-Judge bench of the Supreme Court had taken suo moto cognizance non-supply of nutritional food to the above class of citizens. It had observed that all the States should come out with a uniform policy so as to ensure, that while preventing spread of COVID-19, the schemes for providing nutritional food to the children and nursing and lactating mothers are not adversely affected.
