The Supreme Court on Thursday, 6 May, resumed its hearing on the matter of Centre supplying Oxygen to various hospitals around Delhi, saying that if Centre makes an error in policy framing, then it will be held responsible and accountable for it.

The SC bench of of Justices DY Chandrachud and MR Shah said to Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who is representing the Centre, “You need to look at the issue of oxygen supply on a pan-India basis. There is a need to look at oxygen audit and also reassess the basis for oxygen reallocation,” ANI reported.
The Centre also submitted its plan of action, detailing how the 700 MT of oxygen would be supplied to Delhi, as per the apex court’s directions on Wednesday.

The SC bench had also sought details about the supply chain and logistical preparations needed.

The Centre, on Wednesday, had moved SC against a Delhi High Court contempt notice issued for not supplying the allocated quota of oxygen to Delhi. Though the SC stayed the contempt notice, it did not budge from its earlier direction on 700 MT of oxygen supply to Delhi.
