The Supreme Court on Friday asked the Centre to prepare a comprehensive policy for implementation of a plan within four weeks for eradication of leprosy.
A bench of Chief Justice J S Khehar and justices N V Ramana and D Y Chandrachud said the Centre should also submit in the plan as how it intends to fill the large scale vacancy at the ground level.
