The Delhi High Court has ordered demolition of a road viz., ‘W-12D Link Road’, which connects Indira Enclave, Neb Sarai to Sainik Farm and Mehrauli – Badarpur Road.

The Court held that the land in the concerned Khasra Nos. 487,490,491,649,650,652 Village Neb Sarai on which the said road was made was forest land and non-forest usage was violative of specific orders passed by the Supreme Court in MC Mehta’s case, the orders of the National Green Tribunal in Pavit Singh’s case.

The Court also turned down the submission of the Indira Colony residents that the usage of road was in the nature of an easement on the ground that the construction of the road was in 2013 and that it had not been in use for the statutorily prescribed period of 30 years to qualify as an easementary right.
