Delhi Sealing: Temp respite to over 18000 traders
New Delhi, Nov 23: The Supreme Court, in a major but temporary relief, permitted over 18000 traders in Delhi who had intimated the Monitoring Committee that they have stopped commercial activity to continue their activities till a final decision on the two notifications of September 7 and 15.
However, a Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Y K Sabharwal and Justices C K Thakkar and R V Raveendran was silent over the fate of about 6500 traders who have not filed affidavits. The apex court appointed Monitoring Committee will decide the future course of action in respect of these traders.
The court made it clear that the 18463 traders shall be subjected to all the conditions imposed by its order dated September 29, meaning thereby that they will have to file fresh affidavits by January 31 next year affirming that they would stop the misuse forthwith if the two notifications are invalidated by the apex court.
