This omits bigger generators which are used by commercial establishments. The division bench comprising of chief Justice Arijit Passayat and justice D K Jain asked the ministry to explain the omission. The court has also asked the ministry to file an affidavit by September 26, 2000 regarding a public interest litigation that seeks action against unauthorised use of generator sets in the city.
