New Delhi: The Supreme Court rejected the Centre’s challenge against the direction issued by the Karnataka High Court to increase the daily quota of liquid medical oxygen for the state of Karnataka to 1200 MT on Friday.

“It is a well-calibrated, well-considered judicial exercise by the High Court,” Justice Chandrachud told the Solicitor General at the very outset.

“We will not leave the citizens of Karnataka in the lurch,” the judge said.

Observing that the “High Court has correctly examined the demand,” the bench said that it will not interfere with the direction of the High Court.

According to Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, his objection was to the High Courts interfering with the Centre’s oxygen allocation plan in a time of crisis. “Every state needs it (oxygen), but my concern is only with the High Court directing it. If every High Courts starts doing it, it will be a problem,” the SG submitted.

“The High Court has furnished adequate reasons for passing the ad-interim order having regard to fact that the projection of demand made by the State was a minimum of 1162 MT oxygen per day. The direction of the High Court is only an ad-interim direction. The order of the High Court does not preclude a mutual resolution between the Centre and the State. At this stage order, we and the High Court order careful, calibrated and a judicial exercise of power,” the bench comprising Justices Chandrachud and MR Shah was quoted as saying in the order by Live Law.
