The Delhi High Court on Wednesday, issued notices to the Centre, Delhi Government and Delhi Development Authority on a petition seeking directions to use surplus land available in the city to rehabilitate the traders affected by the sealing drive.
A bench comprising acting Chief Justice Vijender Jain and Justice Kailash Gambhir directed the Central and state governments and DDA to file their reply within four weeks on the petition filed by Saraansh, a welfare association.
The petition submitted that shortage of commercial space in Delhi had resulted in commercial use of residential premises.
