Aggrieved by the order passed by Karnataka High Court directing increase in oxygen quota of the state, the Central government has moved the Supreme Court.

On May 5, the Karnataka High Court directed the Centre to increase oxygen allocation to Karnataka to 1200MT with immediate effect, on an ad hoc basis until Centre reconsiders its decision. The court stated that it had no option but to issue a mandatory direction to the Centre to consider the state’s requisition made on April 30 and meanwhile directed the state to submit a fresh representation on requirement for the 7 days.

The Centre had increased the state’s allocation based on its representation made on April 30, from 802MT to 865 MT, and after the court’s notice on May 4, the allocation was increased to 965MT. The requirement was however, about 1700MT.

Solicitor General Tushar Mehta mentioned the Special Leave Petition filed by Centre before a bench headed by Justice DY Chandrachud but he was told to mention it before the bench of Chief Justice of India NV Ramana, reported LiveLaw.
