On August 30, 2022, the Bombay High Court stated that the Maharashtra Urban and Industrial Development Corporation (CIDCO) has the right to auction the land to private individuals for development purposes.
The 127-page Supreme Court decision was issued in response to two public interest petitions. This has raised the issue of the Navi Mumbai Municipal Corporation (NMMC) reserving certain areas for public purposes. CIDCO is a new urban development agency set up for the Navi Mumbai region.
The Applicants contend that, subject to the proposed disclaimer, CIDCO is unable to allocate land for residential and commercial purposes.
CIDCO stated that it owns the land in question. This gives it the legal right to develop and sell land under the Maharashtra Regional and Urban Planning Act (MRTP) of 1966.
On August 30, the High Court of Andhra Pradesh stated that municipal corporations/municipalities can approve the imposition of regulations or the construction of structures on public roads, sidewalks, sidewalks and other public facilities.
They added that even if the statue should have been installed on a previously licensed basis, this cannot be done now. This is because it would violate the February 18, 2013 Supreme Court ruling.
The decision of the High Court was made in response to a petition challenging the actions of the Narasara Opert Municipality in the Parnadu district. Former Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy approved the introduction of regulations in downtown Mayuri near the Narasaraopeta bus station. There are 10 other buildings in this area.
The High Court instructed the Chief Secretary, the Department of Municipal and Urban Development and Parnad District Collector to investigate the matter and ensure that a 2013 Supreme Court ruling was not violated.
The National Green Tribunal (NGT) on August 30 ordered the government of Rajasthan to strictly comply with the Supreme Court’s guidance and take the necessary steps to announce the final status of Oran or traditional desert pastures in the state.
A statement dated October 7, 2020 alleges that the sacred groves of Oran Shri Degrey Mata Ji in the villages of Rasla, Savanta and Bhimsar of the Jaisalmer district have been used for illegal non-forest purposes.
The annex refers to the construction of two new transmission lines and a network substation on land in violation of the provisions of the Forest (Conservation) Act 1980, the Biodiversity Act 2002 and the law passed by the Supreme Court on July 3, 2018.
NGT has commissioned the Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) to submit a report on the operation of the palm sugar plant in Mokha Village, Osmanabad District, Maharashtra.
NGT filed a case in which the plant operator was accused of failing to comply with guidelines issued by the MPCB and causing pollution at the facility. The court also learned that the MPCB issued a closing order on July 19, 2022. But the device does not turn off.
