HC orders early removal of structures close to SBSI Airport, Mohali

Mohali: The Punjab and Haryana High Court has directed the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) to wrap up the early completion of an alternative route to the SBSI Airport within six months.

The Chief Justice of Punjab and Haryana High Court passed the order on Monday, while hearing a petition filed by the Mohali Industries Association. The high court was apprised that the process for a shorter route to the airport was being taken up by the UT administration, and that it had got the nod of the Punjab Government. The court was also informed that the GMADA had already been working on another alternative route.

The court had earlier directed the authorities to complete the process within six months.

So far as the removal of structures within the 100-metre boundary is concerned, the court had earlier ordered that the rehabilitation package be formulated within four weeks and the removal of structures be ensured within eight weeks thereafter. The court was told that the Zirakpur Municipal Council had already razed the structures, and a Letter of Intent (LoI) was issued in 2019 to the owners of all residential structures that were raised after 2011. It may be noted that CM Bhagwant Mann had said in May that the families affected by the high court order would be rehabilitated.
