Unauthorised constructions should always be razed: HC
| Thursday | 17th October, 2019
New Delhi, October 16The Delhi High Court Wednesday said unauthorised or illegal construction on government land should always be demolished.
Declining to entertain the petition, moved by a lawyers group, the court said allowing the plea would result in illegal constructions or encroachments on government land to remain as it is.
Any unauthorised or illegal construction on government land should always be demolished,” the Bench said.
The court went on to dismiss the plea, saying there was no substance in the writ petition and the prayers sought cannot be granted.
The Delhi State Young Lawyers Forum, which had moved the plea, had sought directions to the authorities to take over all the illegal or unauthorised constructions in the city and to hand it over to the government for housing families of war victims.
