Mumbai: The Bombay High Court on Wednesday stayed an order passed by Mumbai suburban district collector allotting 102 acres of salt pan land in Mumbai’s Kanjurmarg area for the construction of an integrated Metro car shed
A division bench of Chief Justice Dipankar Datta and Justice G S Kulkarni also restrained the authorities from carrying out any construction work at the said land.
The Union government has filed a petition in the high court challenging the October 1, 2020 order passed by the collector allotting the land for construction of the car shed, and said the land belongs to its (Centre’s) salt department. “We cannot allow the collector’s order of October 1, 2020, to continue. The order has to go. We are admitting the petition and granting relief as sought by the petitioner.”
