Smt. Shanti Devi vs Govt. Of Nct Of Delhi And Ors. on 27 July, 2015


1. The petitioners in these petitions are claiming rights to occupy
premises which had been allotted as coal depots to their respective
predecessors. Some of the petitioners are third parties who have allegedly
acquired occupancy rights pertaining to the respective premises occupied
by them, from the original allottees of those premises. Some of the
petitioners are claiming to be the heirs of the original allottees. The
petitioners are, essentially, challenging the policy of the Municipal
Corporation dated 06.07.2011, framed by the then Municipal Corporation
of Delhi, as being unconstitutional. The petitioners further challenge

resolutions of the Standing Committee being resolution No. 874 dated
16.03.2011 and resolution No. 10 dated 27.05.2011. In some cases, the
respondent corporation also issued orders for cancellation of the Tehbazari
licences and for retrieval of the sites allotted as coal depots and occupied by
the petitioners. Since the aforesaid petitions raise common issues, the same
have been taken up for hearing together and Writ Petition No. 3455/2012 is
taken up as a lead matter.
