Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Saturday said she would reply to the MCD notice.

MCD has issued a showcause notice to Sheila for alleged illegal construction in her private property.

However, she maintained there was nothing unauthorised about the house.

"I have got the certificates from the MCD, which were given to me duly signed, and the compounding certificates which were given to me on the same day when I bought the flat and those certificates are with me," Dikshit, who is in Davos to attend World Economic Forum, said.

"The MCD, whether it has got it (her records) or not I don't know because they say they have lost their files," she said.

Dikshit said she was "quite confident" that there was nothing wrong with the flat and that she would answer to whatever queries the MCD had. "As I have said earlier, I have nothing to hide," she added.

She also pointed out that the Delhi High Court's order was for illegal constructions that had come up between 2001 and 2005, and her house in Nizammuddin East was built in 1987-88, therefore, did not even fall in that category.

Observing that Delhi High Court directive on the issue should be followed, Dikshit said illegal constructions should be stopped and government land should not be encroached upon.

The Chief Minister will be returning to Delhi on Monday.
