Orders reserved on unauthorised construction issue
Chennai: The Madras High Court on Wednesday reserved
orders on a batch of writ petitions, which would decide the
fate of hundreds of unauthorized constructions in the city.
The first bench comprising Chief Justice MY Eqbal and
justice TS Sivagnanam reserved their order after hearing
submissions from senior advocates, representing traders
associations and leading business houses, most of which were
sealed and locked by the CMDA and the Chennai Corporation on
October 31, 2011 for violation of building rules.
Arguments during hearing of the petitions hinged on the
constitutional validity of the a High Court appointed
Monitoring Committee to oversee the implementation of building
regulations and whether it would be wise to demolish
unauthorised constructions, when the government was in the
process of reviewing the Tamil Nadu Town and Country Planning
Act or maintain status quo as of now till then.
