Gole Market shopkeepers approach SC

Facing eviction from their shops in Gole Market by the end
of this month, the shopkeepers have approached the Supreme Court
for relief.

The deadline for them to hand over the possession of their shops to New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC), according to their affidavit in the Delhi High Court, is 30 June. The matter is listed for hearing on Thursday in the apex court.
Earlier, the shopkeepers had lost a legal battle in the high court, which dismissed the appeal of shopkeepers against a single bench order of the court.

The HC had refused to give any relief to the shopkeepers from eviction after New Delhi Municipal Council told the court that it has no intention to develop Gole Market as a commercial property and intends to develop it as a Museum.

The shopkeepers had approached the high court contending that NDMC had not taken any decision despite the observations made by the division bench of the high court on whether to convert the Heritage Gole Market Building into a Museum or not and therefore, unless the said decision is taken, the shopkeepers may not be evicted from the
said market.
