1. This petition under Article 226 of the Constitution of India, filed as a

Public Interest Litigation (PIL), flags the issue of delays on the part of the

respondent no.1, Government of National Capital Territory of Delhi

(GNCTD), in processing the applications (of those whose land was acquired

under the Land Acquisition Act, 1894) under the Scheme framed by the

Govt. of NCT of Delhi of providing alternative land as well as the delays on

the part of the respondent no.2 Delhi Development Authority (DDA) in,

even after recommendation for allotment of alternative land had been made,

allotting such land and seeks a direction to the respondent no.1 GNCTD to

process the applications within a time bound period of three to four months

and a direction to the respondent no.2 DDA to allot the alternative land

within a time bound period of three to four months upon recommendation

therefor being made by the GNCTD. It is inter alia the case of the petitioner

that the delays also result in such allottees of alternate land being asked to

pay the cost of alternative land as on the date of allotment. The petition also

seeks a direction that the allottees be charged the cost of alternative land as

prevalent on the date of making the application for alternative land and not

of the date of allotment.
