CAIT urges Puri to dissolve sealing panel

Tuesday, 13 August 2019 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

The Confederation of All India Traders (CAIT) on Monday sent a memorandum to the Union Urban Development Minister Hardeep Puri, urging him to dissolve the monitoring committee set up by the Supreme Court on sealing.

 Secretary General of CAIT Praveen Khandelwal said that now that the Supreme Court has already constituted a special task force headed by the Vice Chairman of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA). There is no longer any justification to continue with the Monitoring Committee and hence this 13 year old committee should be abolished by the Supreme Court, he said, adding that it has requested the centre to put the matter before the Supreme Court through Attorney General.

He said that the government should immediately bring an amnesty scheme under which as on 31st December 2018, whatever has been constructed should be regularised and in lieu of the same the Government may impose a reasonable regularisation charges.

 Khandelwal said that the Monitoring Committee has never followed the Delhi Municipal Corporation Act 1957 and in the last 13 years and has taken arbitrary decisions thereby conducted various sealing which many not be legally valid and as a result has greatly affected Delhi's business and industry There is an atmosphere of terror.

The job of the monitoring committee is only to see whether the orders of the Supreme Court are being followed by the various government departments or not and report to the Supreme Court. The Monitoring Committee cannot make any rules or laws on its will and pleasures but it has made its own rules and has taken unilateral decisions on its own which are beyond its jurisdiction.

The Monitoring Committee in a way gives direct orders to all government departments such as Municipal Corporation of Delhi, DDA, Delhi Police, New Delhi Municipality etc and working as an independent government department without any legal provision.
