National Herald: Centre issues notice to AJL
New Delhi: The Centre has issued a show-cause notice to AJL, publisher of National Herald, asking it why an eviction order should not be issued to get its premises at ITO in Delhi vacated, an official of the Union Housing and Urban Affairs Ministry said Wednesday.
The notice comes after the Delhi High Court dismissed AJL's plea challenging a single-judge order to vacate the premises at ITO.
According to the official, the government has initiated proceedings under the Public Premises (Eviction of Unauthorised Occupants) Act, 1971 in the case following the court's order. "A notice was issued on Tuesday under the PP Act, seeking the AGL's reply by March 13 as to why an eviction order should not be issued," the official said.
