1. The Appellant (hereafter “trust”) was aggrieved by a decision of the
Union Land and Development Office (L&DO) dated 1st September, 2015
rejecting its application for conversion, into free hold rights, of lease hold
property in land measuring nine acres at Lajpat Nagar, New Delhi. The trust
holds the leasehold rights; the other Appellants are trustees. The Moolchand
Khairati Ram Hospital and Ayurvedic Research Institute was constructed on
the said land. The L&DO stated that the request for conversion into freehold
could not be considered because of pending litigation between the trust and
the L&DO, and, that there was no policy for conversion of leasehold into
