SC orders closure of banquet hall
New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Friday ordered closure of a banquet hall, which is situated below Raja Garden flyover in west Delhi, with effect from March 30 saying it is a "traffic hazard".
A bench of Justices Arun Mishra and Deepak Gupta observed that the apex court-mandated monitoring committee on sealing of unauthorised constructions in the national capital has also said that the banquet hall was being operated in violation of provisions of Master Plan of Delhi-2021 and building bye-laws.
Master Plan of Delhi-2021 is a blueprint for urban planning and expansion in the metropolis to ensure overall development. Senior advocate Ranjit Kumar, assisting the top court as an amicus curiae in the Delhi sealing, told the bench that the banquet hall below Raja Garden flyover should be closed down as it was creating traffic problem there.
