The Supreme Court has asked the Municipal Corporation of Delhi to seal
all illegal commercial premises in the capital’s unauthorised colonies,
which are not protected by Master Plan 2021 and the Centre’s
notification by June 30.
A bench comprising Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice P Sathasivam passed the direction and asked the civic agency to seal such premises by June 30. The court had earlier allowed desealing of commercial properties in around 1,500 illegal colonies which were exempted by the Centre’s notification issued on January 30.
The court, however, had said that desealing would be subject to the final outcome of its proceeding in which the constitutional validity of the notification was being examined. “Desealing would be subject to the undertaking given by the owners that they will abide by final orders of the court on the legality of the notification,” the court had said while granting interim relief to the traders.
According to the notification, notwithstanding any judgement, decree or court order, steps shall be taken by the concerned local authority, including desealing of unauthorised commercial establishments, to maintain status quo as on January 1 2006.
