On 21st July, 2017, in the case of Swaraj Abhiyan (V) v. Union of India & Ors. [Writ Petition(C) No. 857 of 2015], the Supreme Court observed that the National Food Security Act, 2013, “a social justice and social welfare legislation, is not being implemented as it should be” and issued a set of directions for effective implementation of the National Food Security Act, 2013. The Court observed that the “Government of India cannot plead helplessness in requiring State Governments to implement parliamentary laws” and “it is more important that each State Government and Union Territory realizes and appreciates their statutory and constitutional obligations and ensures that the will of Parliament which enacted the National Food Security Act, 2013 is given full effect to in letter and spirit.”
