SummaryThe Delhi High Court on Wednesday directed the city government not to implement the 50% subsidy announced by it to people

The Delhi High Court on Wednesday directed the city government not to implement the 50% subsidy announced by it to people who did not pay their power bills from October 2012 to December 2013.

"Don't take any further steps on it," a bench of Justices BD Ahmed and Siddharth Mridul said in an oral order and listed the matter for February 21. The court directed the standing counsel for the Delhi government to seek instructions and file an affidavit indicating the actual position regarding the proposal of then AAP government.

The court passed the order as there was "no clarity" on whether the Delhi cabinet had taken a decision to implement the subsidy as claimed by petitioner Vivek Sharma. It was hearing a PIL challenging the subsidy given by the former government to people who did not pay their bills from October 2012 to December 2013. The bench observed that a note by ex-CM Arvind Kejriwal had said the subsidy proposal needed to be placed before the cabinet.
