SC refuses to stay Mumbai metro car shed project

New Delhi: There is no stay on the construction of the Mumbai Metro car shed at Aarey Colony, the Supreme Court said on Monday, clarifying that it's status quo order is applicable only on felling of trees there.

The top court asked the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) to submit a report on the number of trees cut, afforestation and trans-plantation being carried out in place of felling of trees at Mumbai's prominent green lung.

A bench of justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta was assured by Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, appearing for the BMC, that no further felling of tree is being done in Aarey colony and complete status quo is being maintained following the apex court's last order.

The top court asked the BMC to submit a status report on the activities proposed in the Aarey forest area.
