This petition was made by the NGO 'New Society' in the Delhi High Court. It was said in the application that the benefit of this scheme of the Delhi government was given only to the drivers whose public service vehicle (PVC) batch had a chip. Compensation of Rs 5000 has been provided to the drivers only when there is a chip. Counsel for the petitioner Varun Jain told the court that due to the condition of having a chip in the batch, less than 50 percent of the drivers have been given Rs 5000 as corona compensation by the Delhi government.
