As part of strict regulation to curb COVID-19, High court ordered Gujarat administration to make non medical community service in covid care units for mask defaulters.
In response, Gujarat government notified the High Court on Tuesday that it is unable to monitor those violated mask rule to get the community service done at COVID centres.
It would be tough to keep a tab of whether the person has been really performing community service as directed, said Advocate General Kamal Trivedi.
He said that the situation of the government is like Prince Hamlet in the Shakespearean play. The decision was more concerning about post implementation than implementation.
“Firstly we need to identify places where they (offenders) can be sent to community service….we have to see that we have addresses of each of them caught not wearing masks. We need to have some kind of machinery to track those people whether they have gone to those places for community service,” the advocate general added.
Trivedi urged that the government has put in place a system for stricter surveillance and implementation of the mask rule.
Court stated, it will pass orders on Wednesday after reviewing the state’s submission that it is unable to decide framework for community service as fine for not wearing a mask.
