The Central Government in its reply had demanded imposition of fine on the petitioner.
The petition to stay the Central Vista project has been rejected by the Delhi High Court. The court has also imposed a fine of Rs 1 lakh on the petitioner. Earlier, the Central Government had filed its reply in the Delhi High Court. In this, the Center had sought to dismiss the petition and imposed damages on the petitioner.
The Center had said that public interest has been made an excuse to stop the work of the project. The petition is a gross misuse of the legal process. This is another attempt to hang this project. In the affidavit, the Center had stated that DDMA (Delhi Disaster Management Authority) had issued an order on 19 April 2021. Accordingly, during curfew period construction work can be continued in those places where the laborers are staying at the same site. Since April 19, 400 laborers were working here. At present 250 laborers are working. They are staying there.
