New Delhi, May 19 (IANS) The Delhi High Court on Friday asked the Centre and Delhi government to decide on the matter of regularisation of unauthorised colonies, including constructions in the Sainik Farms.
A division bench of Justice S. Ravindra Bhat and Justice Rekha Palli asked both the governments to file affidavits on the steps taken on the issue.
The court’s direction came after Delhi government’s counsel Rahul Mehra said it had forwarded a decision to regularise unauthorised colonies in the national capital to the central government but the latter had not taken any decision even after a lapse of one year.
On the other hand, the Centre told the court that no decision was taken since certain clarifications were sought from the Delhi government, which have not yet been received.
The court was hearing public interest litigations on alleged rampant illegal constructions in the Sainik Farms here.
Further heading in the matter will take place on May 30.
