The bench of Justices Vineet Kothari and C V Karthikeyan upheld the orders dated August 3, 2018, of the single judge while dismissing a writ appeal from the trust, on Wednesday.
As the trust had failed to utilise the entire land and there remained 29.33 acres vacant, the government, by an order dated September 25, 2012, initiated steps to take back the land.
Aggrieved, the Trust moved the High Court, which by an order dated August 3, 2018, upheld the GO.
Holding that there is no merit in the appeal, the bench today directed the trust to continue with the possession of 10.67 acre.
It should plant at least 500 new trees within six months and build a boundary wall around the land, the judges added.
