Delhi High Court dismisses plea against regularising illegal colonies
New Delhi, Sep 12 (IANS) The Delhi High Court Wednesday dismissed a plea questioning the power of the central government, Delhi government and Delhi Development Authority (DDA) TO regularising the capital's unauthorised colonies.
"We do not interfere WITH government decisionS. No interim relief can be granted. Application dismissed," said a division bench of Acting Chief Justice A. K. Sikri and Justice Rajiv Sahai Endlaw while refusing to stay the regularisation process.
The petition, filed by architect and town planner H. R. Suri, sought the court's direction to the Delhi government stopping it from implementing its decision to regularise 917 unauthorised colonies in the national capital.
"Restrain all the respondents from making any declaration or pass any order or give any direction regarding regularisation of unauthorised colonies in the NCT (National Capital Territory) of Delhi in any manner and by any means during pendency of the petition," the petitioner said.
Standing counsel of Delhi government Nazmi Wajiri, however, told the court that "it was necessary to regularise the colonies and the government did so under the directive principles of state policy (of the constitution)."
