Senior advocate Kirti Uppal, appearing for the dealers, sought quashing of the DPCC order, in which they were asked to deposit the fine by April 16.
The HC also sought responses of the DPCC and MCD on the traders’ plea.
Giving interim relief, the court also asked the counsel for DPCC not to take coercive steps against the traders.
The HC’s order came on a plea by 10 Mayapuri scrap dealers, who have approached the court against the DPCC’s April 2 order imposing the environment damage charges.
The Delhi High Court Monday stayed the operation of the Delhi Pollution Control Committee (DPCC) order imposing environment damage charges of Rs 1 lakh each on industrial units in West Delhi’s Mayapuri, which are allegedly causing pollution, directly or indirectly, by engaging in scrapping activity.
