Photo: Mint New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday told the central government to not float schemes if it did not have the capacity to follow through with them. “Don’t frame schemes that you cannot implement,” a bench of justices Madan B. Lokur and U.U. Lalit told the central government while hearing a case regarding the construction of hostels for girls and boys belonging to scheduled castes. This bench is also the designated social justice bench in the apex court. In its order, the court noted that of the 443 hostels planned under the Babu Jagjivan Ram Chhatrawas Yojana, which was to take effect in 2008, only 227 had been completed. However, the condition of these hostels was not “satisfactory”, the court said in its order. Asking the central government to carry out a survey to “verify the condition of hostels”, the apex court also asked the pace of the construction to be expedited. The report for this has to be filed in the first week of July, it said.
