Prayagraj: In a case involving dependent quota, the Allahabad High Court made an important ruling. The high court also ordered the creation of a new system in the Public Distribution System to retain the daughter-in-law in the family category. The government was also required to make adjustments to the August 5, 2019 directive. According to the supreme court, a daughter-in-law has more rights than a family daughter.
According to reports, the daughter-in-law was not included as a family in the UP Essential Commodities Order 2016 and the state government issued a directive in 2019 on the same premise, excluding the daughter-in-law from the definition of a family. The Allahabad High Court has ordered the state government to include the licensee's son-in-law in the matter of assignment of a cheap street store to heirs after the licensee's death. After the court's judgement, the licensee's first right will be deemed the daughter-in- law's.
On August 5, 2019, the Food and Supplies Secretary issued an order prohibiting the inclusion of the daughter-in-law in the family. On June 17, 2021, the district supply officer declined the daughter-in-request law's for a ration store licence based on this directive. Pushpa Devi had petitioned the court to overturn the ruling. While accepting Pushpa Devi's appeal, Justice Neeraj Tiwari delivered this significant decision.
According to information obtained, the High Court has asked the additional chief secretary and senior secretary of food and civil supplies to consider awarding a cheap street store licence as heir to verdict within two weeks of the new order's issue or revision. Yachi's mother-in-law, in reality, had a shabby street store licence. On April 11, 2021, my mother-in-law passed away. Yachi's husband had died previously. Yachi, the family's widowed daughter-in-law, and her two small children are the only heirs.
