The Delhi High Court on Wednesday reserved its order on a plea for review of its earlier order dismissing a petition which had sought the scrapping of the bus rapid transit (BRT) corridor in South Delhi.
A bench of justices Pradeep Nandrajog and Manmohan Singh reserved the order on the review plea after hearing arguments from various parties.
The review petition, filed by NGO Nyay Bhoomi through its president B B Sharan, said, "Master Plan Delhi 2021 is a statutory plan and has the force of law. According to the master plan, the BRT cannot exist on a road less than 45 metres in width. However, this court has inadvertently computed 45 metres equal to 100 feet, whereas 45 metres comes to about 150 feet...".
Appearing for the Delhi government, senior counsel K T S Tulsi submitted that the court should dismiss the review petition as the petitioner-NGO did not mention in its main petition the ground of violation of Master Plan for scrapping the BRT corridor.
