Gujarat HC issues notices over construction near monument

A resident of the area, Janaksinh Parmar, filed the PIL claiming that HR Space Con LLP and Param Con Corp LLP have put up buildings within the 100m prohibited and 200m regulated zones.

The Gujarat high court on Monday issued notice to the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI), the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) and two developers, over a PIL complaining about the erection of buildings in the prohibited and regulated zones of a listed monument in Paldi – the small stone mosque or Rani Masjid.

A resident of the area, Janaksinh Parmar, filed the PIL claiming that HR Space Con LLP and Param Con Corp LLP have put up buildings within the 100m prohibited and 200m regulated zones.

His lawyer, N V Gandhi submitted that despite complaints to the authorities, the construction has been put up. The question is how ASI granted permission.

On the petitioner saying that the construction of buildings is over, the judges asked why the court was not approached earlier.

The petitioner’s counsel submitted that there were continuous representations to the authorities as soon as the construction projects began.
