SC no to changing order seeking public views on amending Master Plan 24.5.2018 General News
The national capital is being "ravaged" by unauthorised encroachments and illegal constructions, the Supreme Court said today as it rejected the Centre's plea seeking modification of an order asking it to invite suggestions from the public before amending the Master Plan of Delhi (MPD) 2021. A bench of Justices Madan B Lokur and Navin Sinha directed the Centre to "expeditiously implement the order dated May 15 in letter and spirit keeping the interest of the public of Delhi in mind". The top court had on May 15 asked the Centre to give a window of 15 days to the people of Delhi to give suggestions or objections to the government which had proposed amendments to the Delhi's master plan.

"Again unfortunately, instead of taking the people of Delhi into confidence with regard to amendments to the Master Plan, a bogey of public order and ...
