The Punjab and Haryana high court came down heavily on the Chandigarh administration for delaying the Chandigarh Master Plan-2031, and set the three-week deadline to finalise it.

The division bench of justices SK Mittal and HS Sidhu were told by the Union government on Tuesday that the master plan document sent by the UT had been sent back to it for certain clarifications. It also submitted that the government was yet to get UT’s response.

The UT administration on the other hand stated that it was working on master plan document and needed more time to finalise it.

The HC asked the administration as to why it was unable to finalise the master plan, and ordered that it should be completed within three weeks. The master plan is a vision for the city’s development till 2031, and the Chandigarh administration has exhausted several deadlines granted by the high court for its completion. The high court also asked the representatives of Punjab, Haryana and Chandigarh to initiate the dialogue process and to come out with agreeable contours for early finalisation of the regional plan as well at the earliest. The regional plan was being prepared for the towns falling in the periphery part of Haryana (Panchkula) and Punjab (SAS Nagar) so that development is carried out in these parts of the city periphery in a planned manner.
