Delhi HC seeks details of all properties under Delhi civic body’s jurisdiction
The Delhi high court on Wednesday directed the municipal corporations to give details of the number of properties in their jurisdiction, date of sanction of building plans and the date when completion certificate were issued for each one of them.
A bench of Acting Chief Justice Gita Mittal and Justice C Hari Shankar issued the direction while observing that the municipal corporations were responsible for allowing illegal constructions to reach such a stage where nothing can be done about it.
The court was hearing a PIL seeking action against those officials of the corporations who allegedly neglected their duty by not taking any action against unauthorised constructions in the city. The bench directed the corporations to provide the details before the next date of hearing on February 20, 2018.
