In a major blow to the Punjab government, the High Court has stopped the door-to-door flour distribution scheme to be started in the state from October 1.

This scheme was given the green flag by the Punjab Cabinet on May 3. Markfed was made the nodal agency for this scheme and tendering for home delivery etc. was underway.

The matter was challenged in the High Court by the NFSA Depu Holder Welfare Association.

After that, Depu Holders Federation and Punjab State Depu Holders Union (Sidhu) etc. also approached the High Court.

Justice Vikas Suri has issued these instructions while hearing the writ petition CWP 18912 of 2022.
