SC pulls up MCD for messing with Delhi Metro

Subscribe to Oneindia News

New Delhi, Mar 28 (UNI) The Supreme Court today refrained the MCD from interfering with the hoardings and advertisements displayed by the Delhi Metro on its stations or within its complex.

A bench, comprising Chief Justice K G Balakrishnan, Justices Arijit Pasayat and S H Kapadia, restrained the MCD till April 11, on a petition filed by the Delhi Metro seeking to refrain the civic body from removing the hoardings and advertisements on metro stations.

The MCD is demanding shares in the revenue earned by Delhi Metro from these hoardings and advertisements.

The stand of the Delhi Metro is, however, that since the metro stations are its properties, it cannot be forced to share the earnings with the civic body and thus the demand of the MCD is wholly ''unjustified''.
