KOLKATA: Calcutta High Court has directed the Kolkata Municipal Corporation to submit maps of all the 144 wards in the city after a Ward 108 resident filed a public interest litigation (PIL) complaining that water bodies in her ward was being filled up by local land developers.

A division bench of acting Chief Justice Rajesh Bindal and Justice Rajarshi Bharadwaj took serious note of the petition and directed the KMC authorities to submit city maps for the last three decades before the bench took up the matter for hearing on September 7.

The bench also wanted to know from the civic body how many water bodies were there in the city.

KMC was directed to file a comprehensive affidavit in reply by September 7 to ascertain how many illegal constructions have been there in the city in the last three decades.

The Ward 108 resident stated in her petition that local developers had been filling up water bodies illegally in the ward with the help of some “influential people”.

The petitioner sought the court’s intervention to prevent the filling-up work and restore the water bodies.
