A division bench of Acting Chief Justice Vipin Sanghi and Justice Navin Chawla directed respondents — the South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) and Delhi Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation Ltd (DSIIDC) to positively take action in the matter as it considering a letter in the issue as a Public Interest Litigation.

The plea contended that the illegal construction was not removed by the authorities despite judicial orders. It further highlighted that the residents are facing issues due to illegal grabbing of public land and roads.
