New Delhi: A senior MCD leader on Sunday said a proposal will be brought in the next meeting of its Standing Committee that there should not be any sealing of coaching centres in South Extension as directed by the Supreme Court- appointed monitoring committee.

The panel had said the coaching centres should not be sealed as they are not covered under the Master Plan for Delhi.

Chairman of Standing Committee Yogender Chandolia said Delhi Development Provisional Authority had approved the layout of New Delhi South Extension in 1956. The relevant records were subsequently transferred to MCD after its constitution in 1958. The Standing Committee of MCD had finalised completion plan of NDSE in 1965.

Therefore, Master Plan 2021 exemptions are applicable to the area and there should not be any sealing, he said.

The Chairman said the residents of the area have appealed to Lt Governor of Delhi that there should be no sealing in the area.

The Additional Commissioner (Engineering) of MCD has already urged the monitoring committee to review its stand.

Chandolia said it appears that full facts have not been brought to the notice of the monitoring committee.

He said the resolution of the Standing Committee will put all facts on record which will be forwarded to it.
