HC holds stay on demolition of illegal structures
New Delhi, Mar 29: The Delhi High Court today (Mar 29, 2006) directed the judges in the district court not to grant any stay on demolition of any illegal structure on the banks of river Yamuna.
A division bench headed by Justice Vijender Jain said no subordinate court should grant any stay on demolition of unauthorised buildings carried out by the MCD and the Delhi Development Authority (DDA).
The court said if the encroachment on both the banks of the river from Wazirabad, bordering Haryana, to Kalindi Kunj, bordering Uttar Pradesh, were not removed by April end, the DDA vice chairman would be personally present on the next date of the hearing May 3.
The court had formed a committee headed by a retired HC judge to look into the cleaning of river Yamuna and beautification of its bank.
