A fresh round of sealing would start very soon in the capital against commercial premises running in residential areas whose owners have not filed any undertakings and were not covered under the September 7 and 15 notifications on the issue either.
The MCD on Tuesday told the Supreme Court that it was ready with public notices to be issued to informed the people about the court’s September 29 order against commercial establishments not falling under the said two categories.
MCD Counsel Sanjiv Sen told a Bench headed by Chief Justice YK Sabharwal that before commencement of sealing, the public notices would be published after getting them cleared by the Monitoring Committee.
The court on September 29 said, "The commercial activities by those who gave undertakings deserve to be stopped forthwith."
However, taking in view the forthcoming major festivals, it had permitted them to carry on their operations till October 31, 2006. Thereafter they will have to stop the misuse as undertaken.
The premises covered under the two notifications would not be sealed until the petitions challenging them were finally decided, it said.
However, the court had clarified that the sealing process would continue in terms of its February 16 and August 10 orders in respect of the remaining premises not covered by the September 7 and 15 notifications.
