IMPHAL | February 18, 2020:
The Supreme Court on Monday asked Manipur, Delhi, Maharashtra, Odisha, and Goa to deposit an additional cost of Rs 10 lakh each as they failed to pay Rs 5 lakh each imposed on them last week for failing to file affidavit on steps being taken to formulate a scheme for community kitchens.
A bench of Justice NV Ramana imposed an additional cost of Rs 5 lakh on the five states.
The bench also refused to waive off the fine as requested by many states. The central government also said that it will file an additional affidavit in the matter.
