Bombay HC stays transfer order, work on Metro car shed land in Mumbai – National Herald

On Wednesday, Advocate General Ashutosh Kumbhakoni, appearing for the state government, told the HC that the state was ready to withdraw the order and give a fresh hearing to the Union government, but the construction work would continue at the land.

Kumbhakoni told the court that presently soil testing work was on at the site.

The high court, however, noted that when it was of the prima facie view that the collector’s order transferring possession cannot continue, then how can it allow construction work to go on at the said land.

The court on Wednesday granted stay and admitted the petition for final hearing in February.
