Listen to the news

The Supreme Court on Wednesday reprimanded the Uttar Pradesh government for seeking compensation in the case of those who died due to the corona epidemic. The apex court directed the government to place advertisements in local newspapers in each district. Expressing dissatisfaction over the statements, the bench comprising Justices MR Shah and BV Nagaratna said that the victims should be made aware of the web portal where they can apply online for compensation.

The court questioned why you should not campaign
The bench said that it should not advertise that it is a portal like other states and a grievance redressal committee. In each district you should advertise the grievance redressal committee in the local newspapers with their details, portal details etc. We do not see any advertisement in any newspaper.

The Uttar Pradesh government told the bench that a total of 25,933 applications were received by the government, of which 20,060 were paid. The tribunal questioned the statement given in the local press on this. The lawyer said the ads included phone numbers. This is the tehsildar number. The bench expressed dissatisfaction over this and said who will take the toll free numbers. We will call you now and ask to see. You call now. Call the tehsildar.

He also expressed dissatisfaction with the Maharashtra government
Meanwhile, the Maharashtra government told the Supreme Court that 85,279 applications had been received till last Monday. The court said 85,000 applications had been received and nearly 1,658 claims had been accepted. The tribunal said it was unfortunate that only 1,658 people were paid compensation. We order the State of Maharashtra to pay Rs 50,000 compensation within 10 days to all the applicants who have applied so far.

Satisfied with Gujarat Advertising Material
The Supreme Court has expressed satisfaction over the Gujarat statement material. The apex court, which said other states should follow suit, also asked Additional Solicitor General Aishwarya Bhati to submit advertisement samples to the respective states’ lawyers by Thursday. Gujarat’s lawyer said that the number of applications has increased due to the number campaign. Earlier, the Supreme Court had also reprimanded Gujarat.
