The Delhi High Court on Friday issued notices to the Centre and others on a PIL, which sought dissolution of the Delhi Development Authority on the ground that its continuance was unconstitutional.

The petition filed by Society for Safe Structures claimed that the very existence of DDA has become infructuous in the wake of the 74th Constitutional Amendment, which empowered Panchayats and local municipalities to frame building bye-laws and development plans.

A Division Bench of acting Chief Justice Vijender Jain and Justice SN Aggarwal asked the respondents to file their replies and posted the matter for further hearing to October 7.
