June 8: The Supreme Court has issued an interim order in the name of the government not to stop home delivery of goods and services during the prohibitory period.
Responding on a writ petition filed by online and e-commerce businesses, a division bench of justices Sapana Malla and Dr Kumar Chundal on Monday (June 7) issued the interim order in this regard.
The order reads, “Do not stop sale and distribution through online and home delivery service provider companies and online service from providing service by maintaining social distancing, using sanitizer and PPE until a final verdict on the case is issued.”
The Office of the Prime Minister and Council of Ministers has been made the defendant in the case.
The order states that home delivery of goods and services is essential during the prohibitory period and it can be done by following the criteria set by the government for home delivery in 2077.
