Delhi-Gurgoan Expressway: Haryana govt moves HC

Haryana government on Thursday told the Delhi High Court that inconvenience caused to commuters on the Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway was bringing a bad name to the state and sought termination of the concession agreement between Delhi-Gurgaon Super Connectivity Limited (DGSCL) and NHAI.
Justice Manmohan Singh posted the matter for hearing on 31 July.

‘The state of Haryana desires and expects an early solution to the source of insurmountable inconvenience and harassment to ordinary citizens and commuters causing huge line of traffic and obstructing smooth flow of business and hindering economic development of the area,’ it said.

Haryana government has made the submissions in an application moved by it seeking to be impleaded as a party in DGSCL’s plea to restrain National Highway Authority of India from taking any coercive action against it, including termination of the contract to operate the expressway.

The state government, in its plea has also sought removal of the two toll plazas at the Expressway or else termination of concession deal on the ground of concessionaire’s event of default with a one-time termination payment of Rs 118 crore.

The state government said the present concessionaire of the Gurgaon-Jaipur six lane project has also consented to the arrangement proposed by it.
