Adarsh demolition order challenged

PTI Mumbai | Updated on February 15, 2011

Almost a month after the Union Ministry of Environment and Forests passed an order to demolish the scam-hit Adarsh Housing Society, its members have moved the Bombay High Court challenging it.

The Environment Ministry had on January 16 directed the Society to demolish within three months the “unauthorised” 31-storey building in south Mumbai for violating coastal regulations. About 103 members of the Society filed a petition in the High Court yesterday challenging the Ministry's order on the grounds that it is “wrong in law.”

According to the petition, filed through the solicitor firm of Amit Naik, all necessary permission was taken from all the government departments.
