Travelling will be easier for the people of National Capital especially who commute daily via Palam, Dabri Mor to reach Central Delhi and Dwarka, as the three shops situated on the middle of this stretch that caused heavy traffic congestion will be removed soon.
The Dwarka District Court has vacated the stay order given to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) authority in 2016 directing them not to demolish the structure. But however, witnessing complaints and daily traffic hurdles on the stretch, the court has asked the authority to pay the compensation to the shop owners and they should handover the physical possession of shops to DDA by March 30.
The district court pronounced the verdict on the petition of AAP leader Sanjay Puri, who filed a petition first in 2016 to remove these shops as that would help in smooth flow of traffic.
Puri was represented by advocated Rajesh Kaushik and Yash Kumar, who made various applications and representations to various authorities. "DDA which also filed an appeal against the shop owners have also withdrawn their appeal and agreed to pay the pay compensation as stated by revenue department of Delhi Government as per circle rate of category G at the rate handheld 46,200/- per Square meter.
"DDA shall deposit handheld 60, 88,508/- by or before 30th April and the three shop owners shall hand over the physical passion of the shops. The court further directed DDA that in case if they fail to deposit the compensation amount by 30th April then they has to pay 18% interest on the amount," said the court order.
