Justice Rajiv Shakdher of the High Court issued notices to the Union Government, the ESIC and Bhagwati Hospital on the petition. The Court said it required consideration whether the medical facility by an empanelled hospital for an ESIC beneficiary could be stopped midway.

As the petitioner could not generate an income due to his illness, he discontinued his contribution with the ESIC. The petitioner's counsel Ashok Agrawal argued and asked the Court to ascertain if necessary medical facilities could be provided to Nagender at a government-run hospital.

The Court directed Bhagwati Hospital to continue providing the necessary medical facilities as the hospital had stopped providing haemodialysis and other medical facilities since the beginning of the month.
