N Block Welfare Association … vs Mcd & Anr on 10 May, 2016

1. The petitioner had filed the present petition in public interest
seeking a direction to the respondent/Municipal Corporation of Delhi
to demolish in entirety the impugned structure caused by the
Municipal Corporation under their Design, Build, Own, Operate,
Maintain and Transfer Scheme in the parking area of N Block,
Greater Kailash-I Market, New Delhi.

2. On 14.05.2012, this Court passed the following order:-
“In the public interest litigation, a challenge is laid to the
action of the MCD in initially floating a request for
proposal in August, 2009 for public private partnership
to construct urinals for Commonwealth Games involving
a part of the constructed area to be used for commercial
purposes. It may be noticed that three persons had filed a
writ petition no.4562/2010 being shopkeepers of Greater
Kailash-l market challenging the award of such a tender
alleging that it affected their rights. The petition was
filed with reference to a representation made by N Block
Market Traders Association. The present writ petition
purported to be filed on behalf of N Block Welfare
Association. The earlier petition was dismissed by the
learned Single Judge vide order dated 13.07.2010 as
being without merit. It is pointed out to us that though the
present petition is supported by an affidavit of Aasha
Bhutani, the early hearing application was supported by
an affidavit of Mr. Manish Gupta who was petitioner
no.1 in the earlier petition.
