The authority had turned down an application seeking regularisation of the illegally-constructed flats.

The order was passed on a petition filed by V K Sharma and seven other flat buyers in the residential project, who had moved the court contending that the builder, despite having clearance of only 844, went on to construct a total number of 1904 flats.
