The court also demanded the UP government’s reply on the orders issued by the District Magistrate of Noida off-lately.
The SC criticised the order by the Noida DM and strictly asserted that ‘orders contrary to the directives issued by the Centre can not be passed by the District Authorities’.
“Such situations will create chaos,” the Supreme Court bench said criticising the DM’s decision on the necessity of institutional quarantine over home quarantine.
On the other hand, the Haryana government informed the apex court that movement for all persons was allowed to and fro from the Gurgaon border.
