Heritage project - ‘File case against DM, OBCC, Tata Projects’ - Orders Puri court

Thursday, 12 May 2022 | PNS | PURI

The SDJM Court here on Wednesday directed for filing of case

against the Puri Collector, the Odisha Bridge & Construction

Corporation (OBCC) and the Tata Projects while hearing a petition

over the ongoing Shree Jagannath Temple Heritage Corridor Project

in the pilgrim town.

The order was passed in response to a petition filed by Puri Bar

Association secretary Bibhuti Shankar Tripathy.

Earlier, the petitioner had approached the Singhadwar police alleging

illegal construction of the project in the prohibited zone near the

temple without the permission of the Archaeological Survey of India


The petitioner had demanded registration of case against the three

parties under the AMASAR Act. However, the police allegedly

refused to register any case in this connection, following which the

petitioner moved the SDJM Court.

Notably, the ASI, in its affidavit in response to a petition, has

informed the Orissa High Court that no valid permission was given by

it for the project being constructed around the Jagannath Temple. The

court has asked the state government to file an affidavit in response to

the ASI affidavit of on or before June 20. The next hearing of the case

has been scheduled for June 22.
