The Punjab and Haryana High Court imposed a Rs 50,000 fine on Haryana Urban Development Authority (Huda) for wasting judicial time in a case alleging that external development charges (EDC) collected from the residents of Gurgaon were not spent for providing amenities.

The division bench comprising of chief justice Ranjan Gogoi and justice Augustine George Masih fined Huda after observing that even after two hearings, the civic body had failed to satisfactorily answer queries raised by the court.

Huda has been asked to deposit the money before the next hearing and also file a detailed affidavit with answers to the queries.
