HC sends notice to centre, Punjab governments on plea of Sukhna catchment area residents, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate
CHANDIGARH: Punjab and Haryana High Court on Friday issued a notice to the Centre, Punjab government and UT administration on an application filed by people living in the area which falls under Sukhna catchment area.

The applicants submitted that they were facing problems like broken roads, erratic water and electricity supply. Citing the high court order of December 2020, they said that authorities were not carrying out any repair work.

They submitted that the case hearing was scheduled for March but due to the Covid pandemic, the case could not come up for hearing and now the hearing has been fixed for November.

In December 2020, the high court stayed the HC’s March 2, 2020 order of demolition of legal/ unauthorised constructions in its catchment area. The high court also issued notice to respondents for March 18, 2021 and directed that there would be no new construction or renovation in the area.

The Punjab and Haryana High Court declared Sukhna Lake as a legal entity on March 2, 2020 and ordered demolition of legal/unauthorised constructions in its catchment area within three months.

The court also imposed a fine of Rs 100 crore each on Punjab and Haryana and directed chief secretaries of Punjab and Haryana, along with the UT Adviser, to constitute high-power committees to fix accountability for “such large-scale” unauthorised construction.
